Arsenal reignite Ryan Bertrand pursuit

The Gunners have been strongly linked with the veteran defender in recent weeks, and according to the Daily Mail, the North London outfit have now hoping to rekindle their interest in the Englishman.

The report adds that talks between the two sides ‘have intensified’ since it was announced that Bertrand would be leaving Southampton at the end of the season.

Mikel Arteta’s side will allegedly face fierce competition from the Premier League leaders Manchester City for Bertrand, who chalked up 240 appearances for the Saints.
