According to Fussball Transfers, Arsenal are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji this summer.

It’s claimed that Arsenal initiated contact with Dortmund in January, with a view to signing Akanji during the summer transfer window.

Dortmund allegedly tried to sell Akanji last summer. Talks with Arsenal were – according to this report – ongoing, but Abdou Diallo’s move to Paris Saint-Germain meant Akanji stayed.

Arsenal haven’t forgotten about Akanji though, and they want him again this summer. Dortmund would allegedly want a fee of around €25million to €30million (£22million to £27m), but are open to selling.
