Arsenal are watching VVV Venlo attacker Ahmed Musa.

The Daily Mail says Gunners representatives watched the Nigeria international during the recent friendly against Ghana at Vicarage Road.

When first alerted to Musa, the Gunners were not so keen, mainly due to the rapid progress Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made since his summer arrival.

But Arsenal's chief scout Steve Rowley has been impressed with the 19-year-old winger and instructed his network of spies to keep a close eye on his progress.

VVV Venlo would demand in the region of £12million for Musa.
