Arsenal have contacted Borussia Dortmund about the possibility of signing Neven Subotic this summer, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of players in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

Despite all of the speculation, however, Arsenal have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Arsenal are thought to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements this summer and were linked with a move to sign Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli back at the end of May.

Now, Italian journalist Giulianelli has claimed that the Gunners have expressed an interest in signing 27-year-old Serbia defender Subotic from Dortmund.

He tweeted:

However, Giulianelli goes on to say that he does not expect Arsenal to ramp up their efforts to make their second summer signing until after the conclusion of Euro 2016 in France.
