As per the Daily Mail, Arsenal are interested in Bournemouth‘s Jaidon Anthony as Mikel Arteta looks to add further wide options to his squad after the signing of Leandro Trossard, but they might not be done there.

The 23-year-old is a former Arsenal academy player & with his contract up at the end of the season and talks over a new deal stalling, Arsenal are monitoring the situation closely.

With his previous academy experience at Arsenal he’s seen as a long-term option who could provide welcomed depth to the likes of Bukayo Saka & Gabriel Martinelli who have played in every Premier League game so far this season.

Despite being restricted to mainly substitute appearances, Anthony is the second-highest scorer at Bournemouth this season with three in all competitions.

London-born Anthony spent 10 years in Arsenal’s academy, playing alongside the likes of Emile Smith Rowe, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson, so he’s a player who knows the club well.
