Arsenal pondering move for Monaco winger Keita Balde

Arsenal are pondering a move for AS Monaco winger Keita Balde.

Sky Sports says Balde is of interest to Arsenal, and the 24-year-old is keen on moving to the Premier League.

However, several other clubs are also eyeing Balde, who is available for between £25m and £28m.

Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Balde at the Africa Cup of Nations, where he scored in Senegal's 2-0 win over Tanzania.

Balde spent last season on loan at Inter Milan, scoring five goals in 24 Serie A appearances, but the Italian side are not taking up their option to sign him on a permanent deal.
