Arsenal keeping close tabs on Eintracht Frankfurt playmaker Jesper Lindstrom. Denmark international is a versatile midfielder who is enjoying one of the best campaigns of his career so far. Lindstrom has seven goals and four assists in the Bundesliga this campaign.

Jesper can play as a playmaker as well as out wide and his displays have attracted the interest of other teams. The 22-year-old playmaker is keen on a move to the PL, with the Gunners said to be interested in signing the attacker.

The Danish attacker is under deal until 2026, so it won’t be easy to prise him away from the Bundesliga giants. Adding versatile footballers to Arsenal’s squad would be beneficial, but after signing Trossard during the winter transfer window, attackers may not be the position most necessarily needed for the London giants.

Smith Rowe plays in a similar role to the Danish attacker in terms of coming off the left or through the middle, but the Gunners are now at a stage where they could do with adding more competition to most positions on the pitch.
