Arsenal could reportedly sell defender Rob Holding this summer despite a string of impressive performances from the centre-back since the restart – and Leeds United have got to be on red alert.

Holding, 24, started six of Arsenal’s last nine league games – helping the Gunners win four matches and keep two clean sheets. A £2.5million (Mail) signing from Bolton, Holding has played 77 times for Arsenal.

His performances of late have been excellent, even keeping David Luiz out of the Gunners side at times. According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (26/7; page 65), Holding has been included on a list of players that could be sold.

Meanwhile, Leeds United need central defenders. The Championship title-winners remain keen on signing Ben White permanently, but the chances are that White will either stay at Brighton – or go to a bigger club.
