Arsenal are monitoring Monaco’s Keita Balde as they continue to search for a new winger, Sky Sports News understands.
Sky Sports News reported on Friday that the Gunners are expected to make an offer for Wilfried Zaha, who is keen to leave Crystal Palace.
Balde is also of interest to Arsenal, and the 24-year-old is keen on moving to the Premier League.
Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Balde at the Africa Cup of Nations, where he scored in Senegal’s 2-0 win over Tanzania.
However, several other clubs are also interested in Balde, who is available for between £25m and £28m.
Balde spent last season on loan at Inter Milan, scoring five goals in 24 Serie A appearances, but the Italian side are not taking up their option to sign him on a permanent deal.
