Arsenal close in on Atletico Madrid right-back Javi Manquillo

Arsenal are working on a deal for Atletico Madrid right-back Javi Manquillo.

The Gunners want the Spaniard to compete with imminent signing Mathieu Debuchy for the right-back slot next season.

Sources in Spain claim Arsenal want to take Manquillo on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent signing.

The news casts more doubt over Carl Jenkinson's future at the Emirates Stadium. The young right-back is a target for Newcastle.
