Leroy Sane

According to reports from Mirror Football on Saturday, Arsenal scouts ran the rule over Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur target Leroy Sane last week. 

The 19 year-old Schalke prodigy has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season and now netted seven times in his last nine games for club and country. That includes three goals in the Bundesliga, another three for Germany’s U21 squad and a strike in the Europa League on Thursday evening – which was witnessed live by Gunners scouts.

The 6 foot winger has already drawn plenty of attention from the Premier League. Liverpool reportedly launched a €15million bid during the summer and are expected to revive their interest within the next two transfer windows, whilst Tottenham Hotspur are also considering a bid following the summer arrivals of former Bundesliga stars Heung Min Son and Kevin Wimmer.

According to Mirror Football, however, Arsenal have now entered the race to sign Sane after watching him in action last week. He didn’t start against Sparta Prague but came off the bench to net a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw.
