Arsenal are among the clubs who have been scouting Toulouse midfielder Farès Chaìbi.
It is reported they had representatives in the stand to watch Chaìbi play against Strasbourg before the international break, with Sevilla among the other clubs tracking his progress.
Although born in France, Chaìbi qualifies to play for Algeria through his parents and his form has not gone unnoticed by them either, and they are considering calling him up for the national team.
Still just 19 years old, Chaìbi. Has much of the versatility that Mikel Arteta values in a player, and can play in a multitude of positions – midfield, wing and even as a forward. He already has 2 goals and four assists to his name this season, despite only making his professional debut against Nice back in Nice.
He also has the advantage of being cheaper than some of the other players the Dunners are reported to be tracking.
