Arsenal to complete summer deal for this fantastic Newcastle star, Do we need this guy?

Arsenal are set to anger Tottenham fans more with the Gunner weighing up moves for Newcastle United defender Fabian Schar ahead of the summer transfer window, reports say.

The north London rivals had expressed interest in signing Switzerland international Schar before he joined Newcastle from Spanish side Deportivo de La Coruna last summer.

The 27-year-old has been a key player for Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle side this season, making 22 appearances in all competitions to help the Magpies climb to 13th in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mirror, Schar’s form has caught the attention of Arsenal and Tottenham, with the London clubs set to continue monitoring the Swiss star until the end of the season.

As well as impressing in defence, Schar has scored three goals for Newcastle this season, including a wonderstrike against Burnley which won the goal of the month award for February.

Reflecting on the stunning goal, Schar said: ‘I just had some space, tried to do something, and shoot – yeah, it was not too bad.

‘It’s special for me – I’ve never won a trophy like this and it probably will be my last one.

‘It’s nice to have scored a goal like this and it was special of course because of the victory in the game. That’s the most important thing.

‘I don’t score too many goals and this is probably one of the best.’

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is desperate to bolster his defensive options this summer, with the Gunners shipping in the most goals from the top seven Premier League sides this term.

Spurs are also keen to bring some defensive talent to north London, with experienced defender Toby Alderweireld heavily linked with a move this summer.

Schar played 90 minutes of Newcastle’s incredible 3-2 comeback win against Everton on Saturday.
