Emirates Stadium side keen on PSV Eindhoven teenager.
Arsenal are reportedly running the rule over young Dutch international Jetro Willems as Arsene Wenger looks to ably add strength in depth to the left side of the Gunners defence.
The teenage PSV Eindhoven starlet was part of Bert Van Marwijk’s Euro 2012 squad and is a player who has shown a great deal of potential since his move to the Philips Stadion in the summer of 2011.
Willems has been a regular in Dick Advocaat’s PSV starting line-up this term, helping his side to an excellent start to the Eredivisie campaign where they sit just a point off leaders FC Twente.
Wenger has seen Andre Santos produce a series of poor displays and the furore that followed his request for Robin Van Persie’s Man United shirt last weekend led to the Brazilian being dropped for the Champions League encounter with Schalke.
Young England international Kieran Gibbs has impressed when called upon to fill the left-back slot but has suffered with persistent injury concerns over the past 18 months leading to Arsene Wenger’s interest in 18 year old Willems, who the French boss may well feel is a star in the making.
Wenger may feel that Kieran Gibbs should’ve made more progress on the whole as the 23 year old has still only accrued 35 Premier League starts since his senior debut over five years ago.
