Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal are interested in signing Schalke star Lewis Holtby.
The Bundesliga star’s contract expires this summer and is set to leave Germany for the Premier League, with north London rivals Tottenham also keen on his signature.
Everton were linked closely to the 22-year-old but now it appears that it’s the Gunners who are in pole position after Wenger admitted he had sent scouts to watch the Germany star.
“We have looked at Holtby, yes,” said Wenger. “We have played against him, and our scouts are kept on alert and the quality of our scouting is linked with that.”
