Arsenal are reportedly plotting a move for Valencia star Carlos Soler in the summer transfer window.

Mikel Arteta is determined to add a quality central midfielder to his squad ahead of the 2020/21 campaign and Soler has long been on his radar as a player with enormous potential.

The 23-year-old Spaniard, who has previously been linked with Manchester United, had an impressive start to the season in La Liga and is valued at around £30million by Valencia.

According to Sky Sports, Arteta is set to scour the Spanish market for talent over the comings months and will make use of his extensive contacts back home to aid Arsenal’s recruitment drive which has been heavily criticised in recent seasons.

Though Soler put pen to paper on a new four-year contract just three months ago, Valencia are open to selling their top players as they attempt to raise £36m to balance their books this summer.

The Gunners are also prioritising a move for a central defender in addition to young Saint-Etienne centre-back William Saliba who will arrive at the Emirates at the end of the season.

Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano and Frankfurt’s Evan N’Dicka are both firmly on Arteta’s radar and reports in Italy suggest Arsenal have tabled an offer for Manchester United and England centre-half Chris Smalling.

Smalling has impressed on loan at Roma this term which has also alerted the likes of Tottenham, Leicester and Everton.

Metro.co.uk understands that United have slapped a £25million price tag on the 30-year-old England international.
