Arsenal are ready to battle Manchester City for the signing of midfielder .

Having secured the services of Alexandre Lacazette, Arsene is now hoping to muscle in on both Manchester City and for Fabinho’s signature.

The 23-year-old Brazilian was in impressive form for Monaco last season, making a total of 49 appearances in all competitions and scoring 10 goals along the way, helping the French club lift the Ligue 1 title and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

According to France Football (via The Sun), Fabinho is now set for a move away from Monaco, but the Ligue 1 club will refuse to sell him to rivals .

Wenger does have a number of options already in midfield, but with the futures of Jack and possibly the likes of in doubt this summer, perhaps the Frenchman sees Fabinho as a suitable replacement for either or both.
