Arsenal now reportedly want 'sensational' 23-year-old who's been compared to Alexis Sanchez
Arsenal have been linked with Club Brugge forward Ferran Jutgla in recent days.
According to Media Foot in France, the Gunners are considering a move for the 23-year-old next summer.
Arsenal chief Edu is said to be a big fan of Jutgla.
And the Gunners are apparently monitoring his progress ahead of a potential move for the forward.
However, Arsenal aren’t the only club in pursuit – Atletico Madrid are also keen on Jutgla.

Jutgla has enjoyed a great start to the season following his move to Belgium from Barcelona back in July.
The Catalonian has scored eight goals in 14 outings in all competitions and contributed five assists.
Jutgla has also been impressing at the highest level – the Champions League.
He has two goals and two assists from his three appearances in the competition this term.
Jutgla can play up front and on both wings, which would give Mikel Arteta more options across the whole of attack.
As per Total Football Analysis, he is ‘clinical in front of goal’ and boasts ‘high work rate and pressing ability’.
Xavi described Jutgla as ‘sensational‘ during his time at Camp Nou.
Jutgla seems a good shout for Arsenal, a talented, young and versatile forward who’s proving he has what it takes to shine at the top level.
That said, it remains to be seen how much Brugge would want for him. His Transfermarkt value is £6.3million but, if there was a bidding war, it could well go much higher.
Also, would Jutgla want first-team football right from the off? Arsenal’s first-choice front three is pretty much established.
