Arsenal To Battle With Title Rivals Over Promising PL Defender – reports

Arsenal are set to do battle with Manchester City for the signature of Leicester City defender Liam Moore, with both clubs monitoring his availability, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

While neither club has made a move for the player, both Champions League sides are believed to be tracking him with the hope of making a bid in the future.

Moore was rewarded for his excellent performances in the summer, with the Foxes giving him a new three year contract.

This is not likely to stop either the Gunners or the Blues from making a bid for the 21 year old, with both making the effort to scout him heavily.

The defender, who can play at either centre half or right back, is homegrown, and would boost City’s options in that regard.

Arsenal are also thought to be willing to spend big to improve their defensive options.

It will take a lot to persuade the Foxes to sell, however, as they turned down a £5 million bid for Moore last January from Fulham.
