Arsenal are hot on the trail of Lorient full-back Raphael Guerreiro, French daily Le 10 Sport claims.

Spain international Nacho Monreal has owned the left-back role at the Gunners this season, but manager Arsene Wenger is eager to find a suitable back-up with Kieran Gibbs struggling to keep up his game.

According to Le 10 Sport, the Gunners have been keeping a close eye on 22-year-old Guerreiro this season and may decide to make a move for his services in the summer transfer window.

Arsene Wenger's side have had a good association with the Ligue 1 side having previously succeeded in luring French centre-back Laurent Koscielny to the Emirates in 2010.

League rivals Liverpool are also rumoured to be interested in the Portugal international.

Guerreiro has racked over 100 appearances for his side since his move from Caen in 2013.
