Eintracht Frankfurt’s Japan midfielder Takashi Inui is being watched by Arsenal.

The Daily Mail says Gunners chief scout Steve Rowley has watched the 24-year-old recently as he helps manager Arsene Wenger formulate a list of targets ahead of an expected summer spending spree.

Inui — capped six times by Japan — is a pacy, left-footed midfielder who is deployed as a playmaker or out wide.

Inui, who would join countryman Ryo Miyaichi should he complete a switch to the Emirates Stadium, has two years left on his contract having signed a three-year deal when he moved from Bochum in the summer.

This season he has scored six times, grabbed six more assists in 28 Bundesliga appearances.
