Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to beat Real Madrid for Valencia defender Jose Luis Gaya before the deadline day ends later today.
The reports revealed that the Arsenal manager is keen to land Valencia star Jose Luis Gaya who is also being monitored by Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Real Madrid are eyeing him as a replacement of Fabio Coentrao who is likely to leave the club either today or in the summer.
While Arsenal who already have Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal in their ranks are still looking to add more depth in their squad.
The 19-year-old can also be used as a midfielder but his preferred position at Valencia is left-back.
The Daily Star claim that the Gunners are planning for a surprise move of £13.5million which Arsene Wenger thinks that the amount is enough to beat the La Liga giants Real Madrid.
Gaya broke into the first team this season and since then he is a regular playing, has made 19 La Liga appearances for the Spanish side.
Arsenal have secured two signings so far, youngster Krystian Bielik and Gabriel Paulista and are set to announce a late third move tonight.
