Arsenal are planning a move to sign Atletico Madrid star Juanfran as an alternative to Toulouse’s Serge Aurier.

Reports state that Arsene Wenger understands finding a replacement for the Manchester City-bound Bacary Sagna is essential, and the La Liga champion has topped his summer wish list.Despite strong claims that the Gunners were in preliminary talks with Aurier last week, it’s now reported that Wenger will opt for experience over youth.

The 29-year-old has been integral to Atletico’s stunning season, making a staggering 47 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish champions.And the Spanish international is set for yet more action with the Champions League final on saturday, and his selection in Vincente del Bosque’s provisional 30-man squad for World Cup finals.

With the North-London side finally ridding themselves of a nine-year trophy drought, Wenger has expressed his desire to kick on with the Gunners development.A move for one of Europe’s top full-backs certainly conveys the Frenchman’s ambitions to avoid more trophyless seasons.
