Gunners join race for Eagles star
Arsenal are leading the race to sign Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer, reports have claimed.
The defender has been earning rave reviews for his performances after breaking into the side in the second half of last season and the Eagles responded by securing him on a new four-year deal last April.
Wan-Bissaka's form has not gone unnoticed and both Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with his signature.
Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund were linked to the 21-year-old last week and reports in Germany have also linked Bayern Munich with a move.
The Bavarians are currently looking to revamp their ageing squad as they prepare for life after the likes of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery depart.
Despite all the interest from those clubs, reports in the Sunday press are suggesting not only have the Gunners joined the race for his signature, they are leading it.
Defence is an area that Unai Emery is desperate to strengthen, but with money being tight, matching Palace's valuation could be tricky to say the least.
