The French centre-back has recently signed a new contract which includes a fairly inflated £30m release clause and this may well prevent the Gunners, and Barcelona, from making a move for the 19 year old.

The teenager has already represented the French Under 21 international side and has been fine form this season that has helped the Basque side to make fourth place their own in La Liga.

Laporte has started 15 of the club’s 17 fixtures this season and is clearly a player with a very bright future.

Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in a young pretender to fight the likes of Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen for a spot in the Gunners first team set-up though the Arsenal boss is unlikely to offer anywhere near the asking price.
