Arsenal are keeping a watching brief on Getafe midfield dynamo Abdelaziz Barrada.

Barrada has been a revelation for Getafe this season and attracted the interest of Arsenal and Real Madrid.

Arsene Wenger is unlikely to enter the market for the 22-year-old in January but it is understood he will bide his time and continue to watch Barrada this season, with a view to a potential summer move.
