ARSENAL are keen on bringing Marcel Sabitzer to the club in a deal that could be worth £13million according to Bild.
The Bayern Munich midfielder arrived at the Bundesliga champions last summer from RB Leipzig but has only started 23 per cent of their league matches.
Therefore, he could be made available for a transfer to the Gunners but they may face competition from the likes of Atletico Madrid.
He has another three years on his contract at the Allianz Arena but Bayern could allow him to leave much sooner.
Sabitzer is 28-years-old and capped 60 times for the Austrian national team.
He was also named in the Bundesliga team of the season back in 2019/20 season.

Sabitzer is predominantly known as a central midfielder but he can play as a number 10, winger or sitting midfielder.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta wants to strengthen his midfield and add more depth to the squad.
This could especially be needed with Arsenal currently sitting 5th in the Premier League tableand battling for fourth – meaning European football is likely to return to their schedule next term.
Their potential competitors in the battle for Sabitzer's signature, Atletico Madrid, would be able to offer him Champions League football highlighting the importance of Arsenal's final six matches.
