Arsenal transfer target Lukas Klostermann is closing in on a new deal with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

Both the Gunners and Atletico Madrid were linked with the Germany international during the summer. However, Arsenal’s spending spree of over £100 million couldn’t stretch to a move for the 23-year-old.

But after hearing of interest in their player Leipzig look set to offer improved terms.

Klostermann is in his sixth season with Leipzig having joined the side when they were in the second division from Vfl Bochum.

Arsenal are interested in 16-year-old Scunthorpe United midfielder Joey Dawson.

The teenager became the League Two side’s youngest ever player when he made his first-team debut in August coming off the bench in a Carabao Cup defeat to Derby County.

The midfielder is the nephew of former Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson.
