Arsenal are closing in on Eintracht Frankfurt defender Sebastian Jung with a view to a summer move, according to reports from Metro.
The 23-year-old defender is seen as one of the Bundesliga’s most talented young full-backs, and has been attracting attention from the Gunners for a while.
With the Frenchman Bacary Sagna is likely to depart the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, when his contract expires, it’s understood that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is gearing up to find out for potential replacements ahead of the summer transfer window.
Jung’s agent Mino Grillo has confirmed that the Gunners are showing a strong interest in acquiring the services of the £7m-rated right-back this summer.
“In England we know Arsenal are very strongly on his trail for the summer,” Jung’s agent said.
“They have had scouts watching him in the Bundesliga. There is was interest in the past from Inter, Roma and Milan, but no recent contact.”
Jung is yet to win an international cap for his country but he has been included in Germany‘s squad in the past.
