Arsenal eyeing Real Madrid talent Marcos Llorente

Arsenal are believed to be casting an eye over Real Madrid's Marcos Llorente.

Spanish publication Don Balon reports that the Gunners are contemplating a swoop for the 21-year-old midfielder who is currently on loan with Alaves.

Llorente is one of Real's brightest young prospects but is currently behind Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in the central midfield pecking order.

It is understood that Arsenal could try to lure Llorente away from the Santiago Bernabeu with a lucrative offer next summer as they strive to attract another Spanish young gun to North London.
