Arsenal have sent scouts to watch former Liverpool FC winger Suso, according to respected Italian reporter Nicolo Schira.

The Gunners were 2-0 winners against Manchester United at The Emirates in their crunch Premier League clash last weekend.

Arsenal are in fourth spot and in pole position to secure a return to the Champions League following a two-season absence.

The north London side are sure to be linked with a host of players as the Gunners prepare for a potential return to the Champions League.

Unai Emery’s side have lacked depth on the wing at times this season, while Alex Iwobi and Mesut Ozil aren’t natural wide players.

Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira took to Twitter at the start of the week to shed light on Arsenal’s reported interest in Suso.

Schira wrote on the social media site: “Last Saturday #Arsenal has sent his scout in Italy to watch #Suso in Chievo-Milan. #Gunners are interested in him (but is not the first choice as a winger) for the next season. #transfers #AFC.”

Suso moved to AC Milan from Liverpool FC in a cut-price deal in the 2015 summer transfer window.

The Spanish playmaker has established himself as a key player for the Italian side over the past few seasons.

The former Cadiz starlet has netted 21 goals in 125 games in all competitions during three and a half year spell at Milan.

Suso scored one goal in 21 appearances for Liverpool FC under Jurgen Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers.
