According to the reports in Italian media, Arsenal is way ahead of Manchester United for signing the French international Samuel Umtiti.
Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Arsenal is the frontrunners to sign the World Cup winner at the end of the season.
Unai Emery has already praised the French defender and expressed his admiration for him.
The 25- year- old has appeared in 11 games in La Liga and in one fixture in Europe this season. He didn’t feature in his team’s 4-0 aggregate win over Manchester United in either of the legs in Champions League quarterfinals.
