Arsenal are keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund winger Kevin Grosskreutz, according to reports.

Italian sources claim the Gunners have been tracking the German international for much of the current campaign, getting a first-hand look at the player earlier in the season during their Champions League clash.

Bayern Munich are also keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old, who made his debut for the Germany national team last year and already has three caps to his name.

Whilst teammate Mario Gotze has been earning the rave reviews at Signal Iduna Park, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly taken a liking to the versatile former Rot Weiss Ahlen starlet, with Grosskreutz also able to play up-front.

Such ability makes the player an attractive proposition to the Gunners, playing in either the wide or central position in Wenger's preferred 4-3-3 formation, similar to Gervinho.

Arsenal spent big in the closing stages of the summer transfer window in an effort to strengthen their attacking options, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Park Chu-Young joining the Ivorian at the Emirates.

However, the club's reliability on Dutch striker Robin Van Persie has led the Frenchman to consider his transfer options once again, with Arsenal expected to be busy at the start of 2012 in an effort to reach the Barclays Premier League top four again.
