Trio eyed

Arsenal have reportedly been keeping tabs on Lens trio Kevin Danso, Seko Fofana and Lois Openda along with some league rivals. According to a report by 90min, the Gunners have ‘sent scouts’ to watch the three players in action recently along with representatives from Manchester United, Liverpool, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Wolves and West Ham.

Openda, 23, is being tipped for a bright future in the game and has been in fine form over recent times. He joined his current club back in July last year on a five-year deal from Club Brugge and has since fired 19 goals in 38 games in all competitions and is believed to be attracting interest from elsewhere now.

Target identified

Arsenal have ‘identified’ Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby as a potential ‘target’ for the summer as they look to freshen up their attacking department, as detailed in a report by the Evening Standard. The Frenchman, who is also on the radar of PSG, was linked with Arteta’s side back in January but ended up staying put in Germany with Leandro Trossard joining the Gunners instead from Brighton.

However, Leverkusen will face a battle to keep hold of him now despite him still having two years left on his contract. He has chipped in with nine goals and eight assists in this campaign.
