Arsenal manager Unai Emery is reportedly eyeing a move for Monaco midfielder Youssef Ait Bennasser.
According to the publication from popular English news portal Daily Express, Unai Emery wants to bolster his squad with the addition of the in-form Bennasser.
The Moroccan international ace has been one of the success stories for Monaco in what’s gradually turning into a poor season for the principality club.
The sleeping French Ligue 1 giants are the second bottom on the league table.
Youssef Ait Bennasser, 22, could be available for a transfer for as little as £9m.
It might be out of reach for the Gunners who have already established that they are only interested in signing players on loan in this January transfer window.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery confirmed this during his pre-match press conference shortly before the FA Cup clash with Blackpool.
The Gunners sealed a spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 win over the Tangerines.
Young midfielder Joe Willock was the star of the show as he scored twice in the first half before Alex Iwobi added a third goal towards the end of the game.
Unai Emery was very frank when he said that Arsenal were able to make loan transfer only this month.
