Arsenal are interested in signing Sheffield United star John Fleck, and Mikel Arteta is plotting a summer move for the midfielder. But, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has demanded at least £20million for the 28-year-old, with his contract set to expire at the end of next season.

The Gunners have been trying to bolster their midfield options this month.

They’ve already been linked with a number of potential signings, including Juventus star Adrien Rabiot, Lille youngster Boubakary Soumare, and in-demand Brazilian starlet Bruno Guimaraes.

But, it now appears Arteta is looking closer to home for his transfer targets.

The Arsenal boss has been watching Fleck for some time, and his interest has since intensified, according to Football Insider.

Fleck impressed during Sheffield United’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

He scored a late equaliser to give the Blades a point to take home to Brammall Lane.

But, his form this season overall has been impressive, and Fleck has been a key driver of United’s success.

The Scotland international has been named in Wilder’s starting XI on 20 occasions in the Premier League this campaign.

He’s scored five goals in the league, including a brace against Aston Villa last month.

If Arsenal were to bid £20m for Fleck, it would serve as a great bit of business for the Blades.

He was signed on a free transfer from Coventry City in 2016, after being allowed to leave Rangers four years earlier.

United have told Arsenal that Fleck won’t be leaving Brammall Lane in January.

Arsenal are now weighing up a summer move for the midfielder, as well as his United team-mate George Baldock.

Baldock has played every single minute of United’s Premier League season so far, scoring two goals from right wing-back.

The 26-year-old has also drawn plaudits this season after successfully making the step up from the Championship.

Baldock was playing in League One with the MK Dons when United signed him in 2017.

Meanwhile Arsenal have also been linked with a move for left-back Layvin Kurzawa this month.

The Paris Saint-Germain full-back reportedly agreed to join Arsenal in the summer on a free transfer.

The Gunners are also seriously weighing up a mega £50m bid for RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano, Express Sport understands.

Elsewhere, Arsenal have enquired about the possibility of signing Napoli forward Dries Mertens.
