Arsenal step up chase for Lille star after recommendations

Arsenal are monitoring the situation of Lille star Sehrou Guirassy as they look to reinforce their attack in the summer, ESPN reports.

The 20-year-old completed his switch to the northern French side only last summer and is currently on loan at Ligue 2 side Auxerre.

His performances have caught the eye of various scouts, and manager Arsene Wenger has been made aware of his abilities.

It is said that the French boss has already sent chief scout Steve Rowley to watch him in action during the match against Le Havre last Friday.

The Gunners are keen on improving their attack given that the squad have continued to be plagued by injuries over the course of the campaign.

Forward Danny Welbeck suffered another knee injury during the 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the weekend despite only recently returning from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Guirassy has already featured in 15 Ligue 2 matches for his side during his loan, so far managing to score eight goals while providing another one assist.
