This weekend Arsenal reportedly sent scouts across Europe to get a better look at 19-year-old Red Bull Salzburg talent Oscar Gloukh. The teenager, who is currently making waves with the Austrian Bundesliga league leaders, is attracting interest from some of the best clubs around Europe.

Oscar Gloukh first grabbed people’s attention during the U19 European Championships in the summer of 2022. The midfielder recorded three goals and two assists during Israel’s surprising run to the final and he was also named in the Team of the Tournament.

This season the 19-year-old has scored four goals and registered four assists for Red Bull Salzburg, after making the move from boyhood club Maccabi Tel Aviv in January 2023. The Israel international moved to Austria for £6million, with his value continuing to grow ever since.
