North London giants Arsenal are reportedly interested in a move for AS Monaco attacker Keita Bobo Balde this summer.

The interest of the Gunners in Keita Bobo Balde was confirmed by popular French news outlet Le10 Sport.

Senegalese international star Keita Bobo Balde spent last season on loan at Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.

The AS Monaco attacker scored five goals in 24 appearances for Inter Milan during the recently concluded Italian Serie A season.

Inter Milan decided not to sign Keita Bobo Balde on a permanent deal.

The Nerazzurri had the opportunity to sign the Senegalese attacker for £30m.

AS Monaco are open to the idea of selling the 24-year-old forward this summer.

Keita Bobo Balde is currently with the Senegalese national team at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.

Arsenal have identified the wing as an area to be strengthened this summer and the aforementioned Balde can function well as a winger.

The Senegalese star can also play effectively and efficiently as a central striker.

Apart from Keita Bobo Balde, the Gunners have also been linked with other wingers like Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco, Wilfried Zaha and Ryan Fraser.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is desperate to bolster his forward options ahead of the new season.
