Arsenal have the opportunity to sign Lens midfielder Seko Fofana for £35 million during the January transfer window.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Ivorian could be available in January as he is process of finding a new agency.

The reputed journalist added that both Arsenal and Liverpool could move for the midfielder, who is valued at £35m.

Fofana is a central midfielder by trade. He has registered two goals and two assists from 12 matches this campaign.

He could be seen as a competitor to Granit Xhaka rather than Thomas Partey, given his attacking attributes.

Aside from Fofana, Arsenal have also been linked with Palmeiras' Danilo.
