2006 Champions League finalists Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow in their bid to sign Leicester City defender Harry Maguire after the Foxes slapped a hefty price tag on their player.
The Gunners are eyeing a new centre back signing during this summer’s transfer window and Harry Maguire is said to be on their transfer wish list.
Arsenal conceded 52 Premier League goals in just 38 games during the just concluded campaign and Gunners boss Unai Emery is keen to sort out their defensive issues ahead of the new season with the help of a new quality defender.
Fellow Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City are also interested in the Three Lions of England defender.

According to Starsport, all the interested clubs including Arsenal will have to pay at least £90m for Leicester City to sanction the sale of Harry Maguire.
That transfer fee would make him the most expensive defender in the history of world football.
The current record is held by Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk who moved to the Reds from fellow Premier League club Southampton for £75m.
Van Dijk has been in sensational form for Liverpool since his move to the Merseyside club at the start of last year.
