Arsenal are one of a number of clubs being linked with Real Madrid left-back Marcelo.

According to Sport newspaper, the 31-year-old has asked to leave the Bernabeu and his representatives want talks with Real president Florentino Perez.

As well as the Gunners, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and AC Milan are all keen and have made Marcelo aware of their interest.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have missed out on Dynamo Dresden keeper Markus Schubert. The 21-year-old has joined Schalke 04.

Schubert had talks with the Gunners and would have been number two to Bernd Leno. He was promised a place in the League Cup side for this season.

But he is expected to become the first-choice keeper at Schalke by 2020 at the latest. Current number 1 Alexander Nubel is expected to leave the club at the end of next season.
