Arsenal manager Unai Emery has suggested that he is an admirer of Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.
The Gunners are likely to be in the market for a new defender during the summer transfer window, and Umtiti has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League.
The France international may be out of Arsenal's price range, but Emery has acknowledged that he rates the ability of the centre-back.
Emery told RMC Sport: "[Umtiti] is a good player, France has some very good players and the French market is quite attractive for many clubs.
"I always had French players at my clubs, Valencia, Sevilla, PSG and now, here at Arsenal. I could always count on those players."
Umtiti still has over four years remaining on his contract at Camp Nou, but the 25-year-old currently finds himself out of Ernesto Valverde's starting lineup.
