Arsenal are yet in a pragmatic state per transfer of players with reports according to French newspaper L’Equipe claiming Arsenal have been sending scout to keep tabs on young Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont in recent weeks.

Typical with Arsenal, the club’s invest heavily on youngsters and the club’s scout are constantly looking out for talents that will nurtured. We saw Kelechi Nwakali of Nigeria joined the youth side this season and the North London side  are putting a real emphasis on bolstering their youth ranks over recent times

Lafont is only 17 years old but he made his debut for the Ligue 1 side last year and now plays on a regular basis for the French side.
