Defender Malang Sarr has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Arsenal.
Due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has a restricted budget for the next window.
That effectively leaves the Spaniard to assess whether there is value in signing a player on a free transfer or on a season-long loan deal.
According to Marca, Arteta has taken an interest in Sarr's contract expiring at Nice, where the 21-year-old made 113 appearances in all competitions.
During the last campaign, the left-sided centre-back helped Nice finish in fifth position in the Ligue 1 standings.
RB Leipzig are also said to be admirers of the player, who has earned eight caps for France Under-21s.
