Arsenal are closely monitoring the rise of Lyon teenager Amine Gouiri, according to The Daily Express.
The Gunners are interested in signing the 17-year-old starlet following his impressive performances at the Under-17 European championship last summer.
The report adds that the north Londoners can expect to face tough competition from the Italian giants AC Milan for the France prospect, who is becoming fast emerging talent in Ligue 1 football.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has already sent their scouts to watch him on a number of occasions as the French boss looks to bolster his squad for the second half of the season.
Gouiri is still waiting to make his first-team debut for the Ligue 1 outfit but has impressed in the youth league.
Arsenal have developed many young talents into world-class superstars under Wenger, including Thierry Henry, Nicolas Anelka and Samir Nasri.
