Arsenal target Mohamed Elyounoussi has issued a come-and-get-me plea to boss Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners are keeping tabs on the Norway international, and had him watched yet again in FC Basel’s Champions League visit to Manchester City on March 7.

Elyounoussi scored in the Swiss club’s shock 2-1 win whith Leicester and Southampton also keen on the 23-year-old.

The Morocco-born winger won the Norwegian double with Molde in 2014, and helped Basel win the Swiss league and cup last season.

Nicknamed Moi, he is under contract with the Super League outfit until 2021 – and rated at £18million.

Elyounoussi said: “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.

“Basel won’t pick up the phone if they are offered less than £13million for me. They say they will only start discussions if the offers are higher than that.

“There is a difference between the Bundesliga and the Premier League. If an English club comes in for me, Basel can suddenly claim £18m.
