According to German outlet Sport Bild, via Daily Star, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are said to be monitoring Red Bull Leipzig's £26m rated central midfielder Naby Kieta.
The report also claims, however, that the Gunners' interest in the tireless Guinean playmaker is being rivalled by Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, who see the 22-year-old as a long-term replacement for retiring veteran Xabi Alonso.
Keita has been part of the Red Bull franchise for some time now. He signed from Leipzig's sister club Red Bull Salzburg in June 2016, and has rubber stamped a firm starting place in Ralph Hasenhuttl's preferred match day squad.
RB Leipzig's propulsion to the top of Germany's domestic hierarchy has attracted many European suitors into monitoring the club's tenacious professionals. After their promotion to the Bundesliga this season, Leipzig are sitting comfortably in second spot and are six-points ahead of Borussia Dortmund, who reside in third.
