Arsenal are one of a number of clubs tracking KV Mechelen winger Hassane Bande, according to Het Laatste Nieuws.

The Belgian publication reports that half of Europe are watching the 19 year old, who made his professional debut in the Jupiler Pro League earlier this season.

Scouts from PSV Eindhoven, Sevilla, Valencia, Villarreal, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon as well as Newcastle were reportedly present as Mechelen beat Kortrijk 2-0 in the league on Saturday, with Bande scoring one of the goals.

Originally from Burkina Faso, Bande made his debut in the Belgian League against Antwerp back in August, marking his first game with a goal. Since then, he hasn’t stopped scoring for Mechelen, scoring nine times in his first eleven appearances in all competitions.

Despite being played on the left wing, the teenager has already scored against the likes of Anderlecht, and he will no doubt have impressed more teams with his display at the weekend.
