Gunners target £12m winger after scouting trip - reports

Arsenal are being linked with a move for Nigerian international winger Ahmed Musa, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims the 19-year-old has emerged on the Gunners' radar after chief scout Steve Rowley watched the player represent his country against Ghana at Vicarage Road recently.

It's reported that Arsene Wenger will keep 'his network of spies' watching the player, as Arsenal ponder a possible January move for the VVV Venolo player.

The Eredivisie outfit are believed to want in the region of £12 million for the player, although Glen De Boeck's strugglers may have difficulty keeping hold of the player should he wish to leave for the Emirates.

Arsenal spent big on a winger in the summer, with English starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain quickly impressing in north London following a big-money move from Southampton.


Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun, along with the versatile Andre Santos, Park Chu-Young and Gervinho, were drafted in to add to the attacking impetus at Arsenal, and the benefits are only just starting to come to fruition after big wins against Sunderland and Marseille.

It's unclear if Arsenal will be able to find room to add Musa to their ranks.
