Reports have come out and claimed Arsenal are set to step-up their efforts to sign Sime Vrsaljko as Bacary Sagna inches closer to the exit door.
Arsenal are keen on Genoa star Sime Vrsaljko but face a battle as Fiorentina joined the chase to land the Croatia defender.
Vrsaljko joined the Grifone in the summer and is believed to be being watched by the Gunners in recent months.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has sent scouts to the Marassi to watch Vrsaljko on a number of occasions this season already, and will continue to do so until the end of the campaign.
However, according to the SportsDirectNews website they will step up their chase to make sure he will be a Gunner next season.
