Arsenal are hoping to start a summer spending spree with the addition of Benfica winger Andrija Zivkovic, according to reports in England.

Sport Witness, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Gunners are interested in the highly-rated 21-year-old attacker.

According to the same report, Arsenal have been monitoring the Benfica starlet since last summer before his move to Portugal from Partizan Belgrade.

The same article states that the north London side watched Zivkovic at the Under-21 European championship in Poland last summer.

And the Gunners are ready to sign the promising Serbian midfielder to add more firepower to their squad ahead of a proposed title challenge in 2018-19.

Arsenal enjoyed a positive January transfer window despite the Gunners facing a lot of uncertainty surrounding some of their key players.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan completed a move to the Emirates Stadium in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez complete a switch to Manchester United.

Arsenal managed to offload Theo Walcott, Francis Coquelin and Olivier Giroud to raise funds for a marquee signing last month.

The Gunners spent a club record £56m fee on Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on transfer deadline day.

Arsene Wenger’s side are in sixth place in the Premier League table but five points adrift of Chelsea FC in fourth spot.
