Diego Perotti: Genoa forward linked with Arsenal

Arsenal are reported to have sent a scout to check out Genoa forward Diego Perotti and Napoli midfielder Jorginho in action on Sunday.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia, Arsenal’s Italian scout Tony Banfield will be at Stadio Luigi Ferraris alongside several other observers on behalf of teams from Spain and Germany.

Twice-capped Argentina international Perotti has been linked with a move to the Premier League several times in the past and has recorded one goal and one assist in Serie A for Genoa this season. The 27-year-old is capable of playing in any of the front four positions.

Jorginho, meanwhile, has established himself as a regular in midfield for Napoli this term, making six starts and three substitute appearances in Serie A so far.

The 23-year-old has also been previously linked with a move to England, claiming in 2013 that he had been watched by scouts from Arsenal and Chelsea while playing for Hellas Verona.
