Posted on September 27, 2016 by Milos Markovic

Premier League outfit Arsenal have joined chase for the in-form French forward Gregoire Defrel, according to reports from Daily Mail.

Gunners have joined chase for in-demand Sassuolo striker, who has been closely watched by Crystal Palace, Swansea and Liverpool.

Swansea were keeping an eye on the striker last January as the Welsh side utilised their Italian contacts through manager Francesco Guidolin to keep Defrel in the loop.

Arsene Wenger was also alarmed by the in-form striker having reportedly sent his scouts to watch the 25-year-old striker in action on three different occasions this season and is likely to continue to monitor his progress ahead of a potential January deal.

After having bagged his first goal for Arsenal with an audacious strike from distance in Saturday’s thrashing of Hull City, midfielder Granit Xhaka scored again from range in Tuesday’s 4-0 win against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup third round, and the summer-signing has drawn praise from manager Arsene Wenger for his surprise goal-scoring antics.

When asked if he expected the Swiss international to be getting on the scoresheet on a regular basis, Wenger replied: “Honestly? Not really. When we looked at him, I knew he had a good shot but he played very deep last year and he didn’t get forward a lot. I hope that will give him the taste for more.”

Barcelona’s technical director Robert Fernandez has already met with the player to let him know that Barcelona are keeping a close eye and to express the club’s interest in bringing Bellerin home.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out of Tuesday’s EFL Cup third round clash with Nottingham Forest and Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Chelsea, with manager Arsene Wenger saying the Welsh international still hasn’t fully record from a hamstring strain. “(Ramsey) is still out – I don’t think he will be ready for the weekend either,” said Wenger.

Supporters have hardly seen their industrious midfielder this season after his heroics for Wales in this summer’s European Championships, with Arsenal’s opening day defeat to Liverpool being Ramsey’s only appearance. He’s since missed games against Leicester City, Watford, Southampton, Paris Saint-Germain (Champions League) and Hull City, and will be adding Forest and Chelsea to the list as things stand.
