Gunners eye Fulham star

Arsenal are thought to be one of many Premier League clubs monitoring the situation of Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo, who is expected to leave the Cottagers this summer.

Mail Sport revealed that Adarabioyo has a release clause of £10m, though it is only valid up until 30 days before the Championship season kicks off, which is scheduled for August, 7.

That gives the Gunners, as well as any other suitors, until July, 8 to secure his signature before the fee could rise.

Steve Bruce’s Newcastle are also rumoured to be interested in the defender, who has only been at Fulham for a season.

Arsenal may boast an advantage of the Toon Army, given Arteta knows Adarabioyo from when the 23-year-old was on the books of Manchester City while Arteta was assistant to Pep Guardiola.

It comes as no surprise that Adarabioyo’s main strength is his ability to play out from the back, having honed his craft under the likes of Arteta and Guardiola.
