Arsenal are reportedly prepared to sell central defender Rob Holding - linked with Leeds United - this summer.

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to sell central defender Rob Holding during this summer's transfer window.

The 24-year-old has made 78 appearances for the Gunners since arriving from Bolton Wanderers in 2016, although he only featured on 18 occasions during the 2019-20 campaign.

Holding missed an extended period after picking up a serious knee injury in December 2018, meanwhile, and only made eight Premier League appearances last term.

According to the Daily Star, the defender is available for transfer this summer as Mikel Arteta's side close in on a deal for Lille's Gabriel Magalhaes, which is likely to attract the attention of Leeds United.

The Whites are believed to have identified the former England Under-21 international as the ideal player to boost their defensive unit next season on their return to the top flight.

Arsenal would be in a strong position when it comes to any potential negotiations, though, as Holding has a contract at the Emirates Stadium until June 2023.
