Scouts from Arsenal were present at all three of Serbia’s group stage matches of the European Under 21 Championships, according to the Record.

The Portuguese newspaper say they have seen the accreditation for the 130 scouts present at the tournament and are aware that Gunners representatives were there to see Benfica winger Andrija Zivkovic.

The 20 year old has been scouted for most of the season and it seems Arsenal are continuing to keep a close eye on the player. Record say that there is no bid imminent from the Gunners for Zivkovic. The scouts will send their observations to Arsene Wenger at the end of the tournament once they have watched other players at the Championships.

Zivkovic only moved to Benfica from Partizan Belgrade on a free transfer last summer, and initially found first team opportunities limited. At the turn of the year however, he began to play more regularly, and ended the season having played 24 matches, scoring one goal and providing a mightily impressive 11 assists.
