Arsenal target Ahmed Musa is fielding interest from numerous clubs around Europe, according to his agent, with the winger considering his options as the January transfer window heats up.

Musa has starred for Dutch side VVV Venlo's senior team, despite his young age of 19, and a bid of €10 million was reportedly turned down by the club in the summer as demand reached an all-time high for the starlet.

Arsenal scouts have been spotted watching Musa a number of times over the past season, with the youngster fitting well into Arsene Wenger's youth policy.

In particular, Gunners representatives were present as Musa played against Ghana in a friendly in October, and while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is doing well is his first season for the club, Wenger is always on the lookout for more depth in his squad.

Everton were also thought to be interested, but Arsenal would be more likely to afford the Nigeria international's fee, with the Toffees currently struggling in the financial department.

And Musa's English agent Tony Harris, who is hoping to help the starlet get into the Premier League, says that there is interest from numerous clubs all around Europe.

"Yes it's true CSKA Moscow are among a large number of other European clubs who have shown interest in Musa. There is still ample time, however, which we will use to evaluate our options," he said.

VVV Venlo have confirmed that Musa will be leaving the club if the right offer comes along, and if Arsenal hope to steal the march on their European rivals, the club will be closely monitoring the situation.

Numerous sources have put a worth of £12 million on Musa, which Arsenal will be particularly careful about putting forward on a player that Wenger may not be entirely convinced about, and the manager will no doubt be watching the 19 year old closelyt his month as the Frenchamn continues to assess his worth.
