Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly both keeping a close eye on Burnley defender James Tarkowski.

Both clubs are believed to be hunting for a homegrown addition, but any move is not expected to be made until next summer.

According to The Times, the 25-year-old is happy at Burnley, but an offer of playing Champions League football could be too appealing to turn down.

The publication suggests that Tarkowski would lean towards City due to his decision in 2015 to return to the North-West from Brentford for family reasons.

The centre-back has started all 18 of the Clarets’ Premier League games, helping the club to sixth in the table.
