Arsenal and Leicester reportedly prepare to go head-to-head for the signature of Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer.

Arsenal and Leicester City are reportedly set to battle it out for the signature of Celtic's Kristoffer Ajer.

The versatile Norwegian, who is capable of playing in the heart of defence and as a midfielder, has chalked up three goals and two assists for Neil Lennon's side during the 2019-20 campaign.

Ajer's current deal at Celtic will run until the summer of 2022, but a number of top sides have been linked with a swoop for the 22-year-old recently.

According to Nicolo Schira, Arsenal and Leicester are both weighing up moves for the Norway international, who is supposedly valued at £25m.

The same report claims that the Premier League duo are prioritising moves for defenders this summer, and AC Milan are also said to be keeping a close eye on developments surrounding Ajer.

Arsenal have already been linked with a move for one of Celtic's top performers this season, as speculation surrounding Odsonne Edouard's future continues to gather pace.
