Report: Arsenal eye Schalke 04’s midfielder?

Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a January move for Schalke 04 sensation Leroy Sane, according to The Mirror.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has bagged eight goals in 28 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit since breaking into the André Breitenreiter’s first team squad last year.

It has been reported that the north London club have deployed their scouts to Gelsenchirken to monitor the teenager in Schalke’s 2-2 draw with Sparta Prague in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, where the winger scored his second goal.

The German Under-21 international, is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the Bundesliga top-flight, has agreed a new five-year contract with Schalke 04 in July.

The Gunners have added a number of German talents in recent years in the form of Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Serge Gnabry, who is on his way through the club’s senior ranks.
