Arsenal are interested in VVV Venlo striker Ahmed Musa.

The exciting attacker is regarded the best young player to emerge from Nigeria in years.

Musa turned down Manchester United and Barcelona to join Venlo two years ago, but is expected to leave in the next 12 months.

Arsenal are keeping tabs on his form this season - which has been welcomed by Musa. The youngster admits he grew idolising Gunners legend Nwankwo Kanu and would love to follow his path to London.
