A number of clubs are reportedly keen on signing Manchester City winger Adam Johnson before Wednesday's transfer deadline - including Arsenal.

A number of clubs have recently shown interest in signing the 24-year-old on a season-long loan deal, while Liverpool and Chelsea were linked with the England international earlier in the year.

City insist that Johnson is not for sale, but according to Sky Sports, a host of clubs are ready to test City's resolve before the transfer window closes on Wednesday night.

And with Arsenal looking to strengthen their midfield following the recent departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, reports on Monday had suggested that the Gunners are interested in the former Middlesbrough man.

Nasri's move from the Emirates to the Etihad Stadium is likely to see Johnson pushing down the pecking order.

The player himself insists he is happy at Eastlands, but knows his international chances could be hampered by a lack of first-team football, and late last year hinted that he would be prepared to leave the club if he fell out of favour at international level.

Clubs from Italy and Spain are also said to be interested in signing Johnson, as are Everton, Stoke and Sunderland.

The transfer window closes at 23:00 BST on Wednesday.
