But is there any need for the Gunners to pursue the Bilbao star?
Well the 24-year-old only has a year left to run on his current deal and although he is rated at around £15 million by the Basque club, the Spaniard could leave for just a fraction of that this summer.
Susaeta apparently caught the eye after his two impressive displays in the Europa League against Manchester United, who are also said to be monitoring the skilful wide man.
PSG and Chelsea are also understood to be keeping an eye on Susaeta, who has netted and created 10 goals in 50 appearances so far this season.
The Bilbao winger has wonderful technique and skill, as well as and eye for goal, but I don’t think we will hear of Arsenal making a move for him.
He would make a great addition and would certainly add more depth and competition to the squad, but I think Arsene Wenger has a lot of faith in his current wingers Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho, and will stick by them. We also have Lukas Podolski arriving in the summer that can also play out wide, so perhaps there is no need for us to sign Susaeta.
Besides, if Real and PSG are supposedly interested in his services then we stand very little chance of acquiring him, as the aforementioned clubs can offer higher wages to the player.
