Arsenal are in a hotly contested race to sign Croatian midfielder Lovro Majer from Rennes.
With Thomas Partey regularly suffering from injuries, bringing in a midfielder in January could be a priority for Mikel Arteta during the January transfer window.
Mohamed Elneny also picked up an injury earlier in the season, meaning Arsenal lack options in midfield.
Now, according to Transfers, Arsenal will face competition from Barcelona and Real Madrid, among others, to sign Rennes midfielder Majer.

Majer is a highly skilled attacking midfielder and it’s no surprise to see some of Europe’s elite keeping an eye on him.
Working with Mikel Arteta at Arsenal is an exciting prospect at the moment, especially considering how keen he is to give younger players a chance to express themselves.
Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League, having lost just one game so far this season, winning the rest.
Despite this, there is no doubt that they will still need reinforcements over the next 12 months if they are to continue to compete with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the league.
