ARSENAL are reportedly interested in Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny.
The right-back, 23, is currently out on loan at German side Schalke, where has turned in some impressive performances.
And now, according to MailOnline, Kenny has made the Gunners’ shortlist of summer transfer targets.
The defence is sure to be an area boss Mikel Arteta looks at strengthening once the Premier League season finally ends.
Hector Bellerin is the first choice right-back but the Spaniard has looked far from his best since returning from injury.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is the usual back-up for Bellerin, but he is more of a midfielder than full-back.
Kenny could be a realistic target seen as he has failed to break into the Everton first-team.
The Liverpool-born defender has featured 26 times for Schalke, and Bild has reported that he is keen to stay at the Bundesliga club.
The Gunners’ hopes of signing the Spaniard were given a boost as Zinedine Zidane put him on a list of stars who could leave Real Madrid this summer, according to reports.
Zidane needs to cut down his current squad of 37 – including those out on loan – to fit within the 25-man quota for next season.
And it is thought Ceballos, 23, could well be one of the 12 at risk of facing the chop – as well as the likes of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez.
According to the Daily Star, the Gunners will be hopeful of securing a new deal for the man they have on loan at the Emirates until June 30 – either temporarily again or on a permanent deal.
