ARSENAL have reportedly been linked with a shock move to snap up free agent Sergio Ramos.
It had been expected that the 35-year-old was to sign for Paris Saint-Germain after running his contract down at Real Madrid.
The Spanish defender is claimed to have already agreed a two-year deal with Les Parisiens.
But according to Goal, no deal has yet been done between Ramos and the Ligue 1 outfit.
And they have stated that Mikel Arteta has asked to be kept informed of any developments regarding the four-time Champions League winner’s future.
The North London giants are also believed to face English competition from Chelsea in the race to secure Ramos’ services.
A switch to PSG is still understood to be Ramos’ priority as he looks to prolong his career at the highest level.
And Mauricio Pochettino’s side can offer the ex-Los Blancos man Champions League football, while Arsenal will be playing in no European competition next term.
Arsenal are known to be in the market for a new centre-back having had two bids rejected by Brighton for Ben White.
