Arsenal are reportedly determined to sign Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente as manager Arsene Wenger sees him as a star for the future.

Arsenal are reportedly determined to lure Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente to the Emirates.

The 21-year-old was part of the Spanish giants' youth structure since 2008 before making his first-team debut last year.

Llorente is currently on loan at Alaves in order to get some minutes under his belt, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is keen to develop the midfielder in North London, according to Don Balon.

Wenger is believed to have identified the Spaniard as a potential star for the next 10 years, but the player, who has made two La Liga appearances, has a family history with Real.

The midfielder's father, great uncle and grandfather all played for Los Blancos.
