Arsenal are watching Nuremberg forward Josep Drmic, according to reports from The Metro.

The Gunners are set for a big summer of transfer activity, with securing a new striker said to be a priority.

Beyond Olivier Giroud, Arsene Wenger has been short on options up front this term, with Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo his only genuine alternatives.

But with the Dane looking likely to leave on a free transfer and the young Frenchman not seen as able to hold down a regular spot at this stage in his career, a new option is needed.

Drmic has emerged as the latest man to have attracted Arsenal’s interest, with the Switzerland international having been in top form in the Bundesliga.

The 21-year-old has netted 11 goals in 23 league outings since arriving at the club from FC Zurich, earning much praise in the process.

At 6ft. 2”, the youngster has been lauded for his physical presence, which could be a useful asset in the demanding world of the Premier League.

As well as Arsenal, Russian giants Zenit Saint-Petersburg and Rubin Kazan are also said to be keen, following strong interest from the duo in January.
