Time was when the scouts of Arsenal were adjudged the best in the Premier League as they were able to unearth talented players.
According to reports, Arsenal are scouting Aldershot Town star winger Idris Kanu.
The Gunners are among a number of Premier League teams taking a look at the 17-year-old, according to GetHampshire.
A host of Premier League clubs including Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Manchester City are understood to be interested in the player’s signature.
He also happens to be the namesake of Arsenal legend Kanu, who made 119 appearances and scored 43 goals over six seasons with the north Londoners.
While Arsenal look unlikely to make any big-name signings during January, they definitely seem keen to bring in younger players who may have been missed by other top-flight sides.
