Gunners tracking Danish midfield prospect.
Arsenal have reportedly made an enquiry to Serie A giants Inter Milan over the availability of young midfielder Patrick Olsen, according to talkSPORT.
The Gunners have supposedly been keen to take the 19-year-old Dane on loan with a view to a permanent deal, though this proposal has been rejected by Inter, who are reluctant to lose such a highly-rated talent.
Olsen started his career back in Denmark with Brondby, before being snapped up by Inter in 2012, though he is yet to break into the first-team picture at the San Siro.
Arsenal have a reputation for finding young players and nurturing them into top class performers, and may look to come back to Inter with an offer of a permanent move for Olsen when the transfer window re-opens in January.
Arsene Wenger has had scouts watch the skillful midfielder on several occasions, and the French tactician is now keen to add him to his squad at the Emirates Stadium, as the team could do with extra depth in that part of the pitch due to recent injuries sustained by Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky.
Another of Arsenal’s main targets for January seems to be Sochaux right-back Sebastien Corchia, as Wenger looks to continue to enjoy the improved funds available to him at the club.
