Arsenal 'make contact' with Eintracht Frankfurt over Jesper Lindstrom with Liverpool also 'highly interested'
| Last updated
Arsenal have made contact with Eintracht Fankfurt midfielder Jesper Lindstrom amid interest from Liverpool, according to reports.
But it seems the two clubs will battle both on and off the pitch, with the pair set to lock horns in the race for Lindstrom.
Arteta is allegedly keen to strengthen his midfield this summer to help cope with a busy European schedule next season, with a Champions League finish all but guaranteed.
Lindstrom to Arsenal?
Arsenal have already made contact with Frankfurt over a potential deal for Lindstrom, claim Sky Germany.
The report states that the 23-year-old will cost around £35 million, with Frankfurt expecting a mass clear-out this summer.
The Bundesliga side are also set to lose Daichi Kamada and Djibril Sow for free at the end of the season. While Evan N'Dicka has been given the green light to join Liverpool.
Lindstrom has managed nine goals and four assists across all competitions this season, helping his side to sixth place in the league.
He would help provide competition for Gunners captain Martin Odegaard, who has enjoyed a breakout season at the Emirates.
However, Arteta is likely to face competition from Liverpool, with journalist Florian Plettenberg claiming that the Reds are 'highly interested' in signing the Denmark international.
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly plotting a major overhaul this summer, with the German eager to refresh his ageing midfield.
