Arsenal are reportedly ready to battle Manchester United for the signature of Roma defender Kostas Manolas.

Roma defender Kostas Manolas has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Arsenal.

Manolas is nearing the end of his fifth campaign at the Stadio Olimpico, and a total of 197 appearances have been made in all competitions.

However, the 27-year-old has been frequently linked with a switch to another top European club, and Manchester United are said to be considering making an offer.

Manolas allegedly has a release clause of £31m in his contract, and according to Calciomercato, Arsenal are also monitoring the situation.

The Gunners could strengthen their defensive ranks during the summer, and Manolas could fit the bill due to his age, experience and price tag.
