Arsenal are keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund midfielder Emre Mor, according to the Sun. Arsene Wenger has asked to be kept updated with developments in view to making an offer once they have sold a number of unwanted players

A host of European clubs are said to be pursuing the Turkish international with both Merseyside teams Liverpool and Everton believed to be in the running, as well as Serie A sides Inter Milan, Roma and Fiorentina.

The Viola have reportedly already made a bid for the 20 year old worth €12million (£10.7m) which was turned down, while Roma are also said to have had a €20million (£18m) offer rejected.

Mor joined Bundesliga side Dortmund from Nordsjaelland for £8.3m last summer but he failed to establish himself under manager Thomas Tuchel. He spent most of last season either on the subs bench or even out of the matchday squad entirely, playing 19 times and making just six starts in all competitions, scoring once and providing three assists.

He may find himself with more chances under new coach Peter Bosz, but it will be interesting to see whether he features in the Dutch manager’s first team plans in the first few games of the season, or if he will be offloaded before the end of the transfer window.
