Arsenal have been linked with snapping up Max Mayer from Schalke on a free, but now they have set their sights on a bigger prize.

Indeed, according to AS, Arsene Wenger wants to sign Saul this summer after watching him in action.

The Spaniard has previously been linked with a big-money move to Manchester United after several eye-catching performances in La Liga.

Now, though, it is Arsenal who are ready to test the resolve of their Europa League semi-final opponents with a summer bid.

The Gunners, who have never faced the Spaniards competitively, will meet Diego Simeone’s men for a chance to face either Marseille or Red Bull Salzburg in the final.
