Wenger keen on Frenchman as Arsenal boss looks to fend off interest and get deal done

There has been some reports which have claimed Arsenal are set to battle it out with Napoli for the signing of Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, according to the Metro website.

The Frenchman is one of a number of players that the Saints could lose this season, as Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Jay Rodriguez are all also linked with a move away.

The Gunners have been paying close attention to Schneiderlin throughout the season, as they look to add a holding midfielder to their squad.

However, they may be pipped to the post by Rafa Benitez, who’s looking to strengthen his side after securing Champions League football next season.
