Arsenal Linked With January Move For Schar

Report Speaks Of £9.5m Transfer

Fabian Schar Arsenal transferArsenal are closing in on the £9.5million transfer of Basel defender Fabian Schar, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has long been linked with a move to the Emirates but a report in the Daily Star claims talks are at an advanced stage for a move for the Switzerland international.

The Star’s report has been picked up by Spanish website which claims that despite having other offers on the table Schar is keen on an Arsenal transfer.

Schar was linked last week with Serie A side Juventus and he told an Italian website that he could not rule out a move to Italy. Manchester United have also been linked.

Arsenal were linked with Schar last summer, but his contract with Basel expires at the end of this season which makes talk of a £9.5million deal somewhat premature, especially if they can sign him for nothing next summer.
