Arsenal will have to fend off the threat of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their quest to sign Premier League defender Fabian Schar.
According to the report from popular media platform Goal, Spurs are keen on a move for the Swiss international centre back.
Fabian Schar has been in very good form for Newcastle United in his first season at the club.
The Swiss defender signed for the Magpies from Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna at the start of this season.
He was unable to prevent Deportivo La Coruna from suffering relegation from the Spanish La Liga last season.
Newcastle United paid £3m to secure his transfer from the Spanish Segunda division last season.
Arsenal have made the signing of a new centre back their top priority ahead of the transfer window this summer.
Unai Emery is keen to boost his centre back options for next season with the signing of a new centre back and Fabian Schar could be a fantastic addition to the Gunners set up under the Spanish tactician.
Fabian Schar was in very good form for Newcastle United as the Magpies came from two goals down to beat Everton 3-2 at home.
Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez (2) were on target for Newcastle United.
