Arsenal have been linked with a move for FC Basel winger Mohamed Elyounoussi in recent weeks.
The Norway international is enjoying a good season in Switzerland and has been one of Basel’s most impressive performers. Elyounoussi particularly flourished in his side’s shock win at Manchester City. The winger netted one and assisted another in Basel’s 2-1 victory at the Etihad.
Reports indicated that Arsenal, along with many other top flight clubs, had scouts at the stadium present as they continued to track Elyounoussi.
After such a performance, it comes as no great surprise to see that the attacker has been quizzed on his future and, more notably the links with Arsenal in recent months.
Elyounoussi, as quoted by Football 365, admitted that a top club in England’s interest has “increased” of late, indicating that a summer move for the player could be on the cards.
A club which is usually in the Premier League top four has followed me for a long time. I just learned that they have stepped up their interest even more after what happened in the Champions League.
Is it Arsenal? I can’t comment, but it is a club that everybody knows with a long history. A big club that has watched me a couple of times before, but they have now increased their interest in me.
It is cool that such a big club is showing great interest. But of course I know a club like this has many players on its radar.
Southampton and Leicester have also been linked with the Norwegian wide man.
