Arsenal are reportedly considering making an attempt to sign Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca during this summer's transfer window.

The 23-year-old is expected to leave his Catalan club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign following their relegation to the Segunda Division.

Bayern Munich have previously been credited with an interest in the Spaniard, but according to, Arsenal are also very much in the hunt for his services.

The report claims that the Gunners 'could be tempted' to move for the central midfielder this summer as head coach Mikel Arteta looks to improve his options ahead of next season.

Roca is thought to have a €40m (£35.8m) release clause in his current deal at the RCDE Stadium but should be available for less following Espanyol's shock relegation.

The former Spain Under-21 international has scored twice and provided three assists in 41 appearances for the White and Blues during the current season.
