As Arsenal scour Europe looking for players they can afford, new names are popping up all the time and that’s what we have here.

According to Bild, Arsenal, along with Atletico Madrid, have shown interest in the right-back.

The kicker is that Arsenal will make a move for the player, who isn’t really looking to leave Germany, ‘should Hector Bellerin depart’.

Given he’s under contract until 2023 and seemingly very happy at Arsenal that doesn’t seem very likely. Unless, that is, the club decides they want the money his sale would generate.

Then the club would have to listen to the fans ask why the hell we sold one of our best players.

Klostermann scored five and assisted one in 26 Bundelisga appearances last season.
