Arsenal Send Scouts To Italy To Watch Proven Goal Scorer

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal and Everton have both sent scouts to watch 19 year old North Korean international Han Kwang-song in Italy, according to the Sun.

The striker moved to Cagliari in 2015 as a youth player but he rose to prominence at the end of the previous season after scoring in a 3-2 home defeat against Torino in April. He played five games in total in Serie A during the latter stages of the 2016-17 season.

To have more experience in the first team, he was sent out on loan to Serie B club Perugia at the beginning of this season. He has started all three of the Italian side’s fixtures so far, including scoring a hat-trick in only his second game for the club in a 5-1 away win over Virtus Entella at the end of last month. The forward is currently topping the Serie B scoring charts with four goals.

In addition to the Gunners and the Toffees, Serie A champions Juventus are also said to be keeping a close watch on Kwang-song’s progress. Scouts are likely to be watching when Perugia face Cittadella on Monday night.
