Leicester full-back linked with Arsenal moves

Leicester City full-back Timothy Castagne has been linked with a move to Arsenal with suggestions that talks between the two clubs have already begun.

The 27 year old is one of a host of players set to leave the East Midlands club this summer following their relegation to the Championship.

The Belgian international joined them three years ago, having previously played for Atalanta in Italy, and his boyhood club Genk back in his native country.

Since then he has made 112 appearances for the club, scoring 5 times and providing 8 assists.

He played under Arsenal assistant coach Albert Stuivenberg during his time in Genk, along with compatriot Leandro Trossard.

The Gunners are looking for cover for Ben White, with both Cedric Soares and Ainsley Maitland-Niles set to leave the club this summer, and Takehiro Tomiyaso proving to be increasingly injury prone.

Castagne has been capped 31 times by Belgium at senior level.
