Fabian Delph has emerged as a free transfer target for Arsenal and Everton, according to reports.

Aston Villa are reportedly facing a battle to keep Fabian Delph at the club with Arsenal and Everton contemplating a move next summer.

The 24-year-old has been part of a Villans side that has made its best start to a league season under Paul Lambert and has even earned a first call-up to the England national team.

However, The Mirror reports that Delph is set to leave on a free transfer next summer and has yet to agree a deal to remain at Villa Park beyond the end of the season.

Arsenal are thought to be mulling over a possible move as Arsene Wenger looks to add energy to his midfield, but could face competition from Everton, who are also aware of Delph's contractual situation.

The Gunners have also been linked with a January move for one of Southampton's Victor Wanyama and Morgan Schneiderlin as well as Borussia Dortmund's Sven Bender.
