Arsenal have stepped up their interest in Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama. The Daily Mail says Arsenal stepped up their interest in Wanyama on Tuesday night.

A senior Gunners scout was dispatched to Parkhead for the Champions League clash against Juventus to run the rule over the Kenyan.

Arsenal sources claim the midfielder's performance in Tuesday's clash against the Serie A champions would be pivotal in whether Arsene Wenger and his chief scout Steve Rowley decide to solidify their interest in Wanyama, given the higher-calibre opposition.
