Aston Villa face a fight to keep newly capped England star Fabian Delph, with Arsenal keen on his signature at the end of the season, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The player’s contract expires in the summer, and despite being offered a bumper new deal by the Midlands club, Delph has not put pen to paper.
This has put Arsenal on red alert, who feel as though they can sensationally swoop and get him on a free transfer at the end of the season.
There is also interest from Everton manager Roberto Martinez, who also rates the young star.
Delph would be an ideal fit for the Emirates Stadium club, who lack a ball winning midfielder like the former Leeds United star.
While manager Arsene Wenger has previously tried to move for the likes of Spurs target Morgan Schneiderlin to fill that gap, it now seems as though he has his eyes on another solution.
