Arsene Wenger is keeping tabs on Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo.
Arsenal boss Wenger has instructed scouts to watch 26-year-old Montolivo this season and they were represented at Italy’s win over Slovenia.
Italy international Montolivo, who plays the midfield holding role, was linked with Arsenal this summer and is out of contract at the end of the season. Fiorentina are hoping he will sign a new deal.
Arsenal will face competition from AC Milan if they decide to pursue any interest in Montolivo.
