Arsenal scouts have been monitoring the progress of Lyon midfielder Jordan Ferri. Arsene Wenger deployed Gilles Grimandi to keep watch on the 22-year-old central midfielder last week.



The French under-21 international made his debut in December 2012 and has now forced his way into Lyon's starting lineup on a regular basis. The tough tackling 5 foot 7 player is very highly rated in Ligue 1 and has contributed with four assists so far this league campaign.

Lyon have a history of producing some of France's best young talent and are said to be requesting a fee of around 8.5 million euros for Ferri. 

AC Milan are also known to have been keeping an eye on the talented midfielder.
