Arsenal have sent scouts out to watch Monaco’s left back Layvin Kurzawa.
The Gunners are keen to improve their defensive options heading into the January transfer window, and as a result, have targeted Kurzawa.
Arsene Wenger’s side have shown little resistance to attacks in recent weeks, with the defence collapsing entirely on Saturday as they lost 3-2 to Stoke City.
The result could have been far worse, with Stoke three goals ahead by half time and Bojan Krckic having a goal ruled out in questionable circumstances.
As a result, Wenger has sent former star Gilles Grimandi to run the rule over the 22 year old defender.
Should Grimandi return with positive feedback on Kurzawa, Arsenal would be likely to make a bid for the £15 million rated star, according to the Daily Mail.
Despite the significant criticism of Wenger and Arsenal in recent weeks, the north London side have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
