Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta remains interested in bringing Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti to London.

The Daily Star reports that the Arsenal boss is considering a swoop for the 28-year-old this summer despite missing out on a loan move for the player back in January.

The French international is supposedly surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp, and has now been told he can leave the LaLiga giants.

The news comes in the same week that Gunners centre-back Gabriel was linked with a transfer to Juventus.

Should the Brazilian exit the Emirates, Arteta may well decide to replace him with the experienced Umtiti.

However, many Arsenal supporters are hoping to see William Saliba in the first team next season after the 21-year-old's successful season on loan at Marseille.
