Arsenal are plotting a summer raid for Aston Villa sensation Carney Chukwuemeka.
The 18-year-old has impressed Gunners scouts during the nine games he has played for Villa in the Premier League this term.
According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal like the look of the young no.10, and they believe his creativity and speed may give them what they need in the middle of the mark.
Arsenal may even want to play Chukwuemeka deeper, as a replacement for Granit Xhaka, who could leave in the summer.
Chukwuemeka is in demand, with the likes of Liverpool and both Manchester clubs also interested in his signature.
