Arsenal to post scouts to check on Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante

Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante is on Arsenal's radar.

Calciomercato.com says Arsenal plan to send scouts to watch Cristante in action against Lecce on Sunday.

The 24-year-old's attributes fit the frenetic pace of Premier League football, making him an ideal target for the Gunners.

Having inherited a squad consisting of players acquired by predecessors Unai Emery and Arsene Wenger, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is planning a summer overhaul of his midfield.

And it seems that Cristante, who can operate anywhere in a midfield three, has emerged as a potential target on the young manager's shopping list.
