Arsenal are believed to be amongst a number of clubs who are interested in making a summer move for Schalke star Leroy Sane.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been in impressive form for the German outfit this season and has, according to Mundo Deportivo, been placed upon Barcelona’s transfer wishlist, with the Gunners also interested in his services.

Sane has been a regular in Schalke’s first-team this campaign, scoring five goals and bagging four assists in his 15 Bundesliga appearances.

Due to the nature of his performances for André Breitenreiter’s side, Sane’s price tag has risen to a reported £28.9m, with the La Liga giants favourites to acquire his signature.
