The London Evening Standard says Arsene Wenger has been sending scouts to watch the versatile 20-year-old and Cousins last night impressed with his performance at the City Ground, where his 81st-minute strike helped keep Charlton clear of the bottom three.
"I do support Arsenal," Cousins said. "Obviously the Premier League is my long-term dream but the short-term is about keeping Charlton in the Championship. I've got two more years on my contract and I'm focused on that.
"Charlton give you a chance to express yourself and play in the first team and that's what I want to do."
