Arsenal dispatches scouts to watch Italian Defender

With the January transfer window just around the corner and the Gunners sitting around the top of the table, manager Arsene Wenger is hoping to make a few signing during the winter window in the hopes of pushing his club towards winning the Premier League title.

One of the players being considered is Genoa centre-back Armando Izzo after Italian newspaper II Secolo XIX claimed that Arsenal scouts were on hand to watch the 23-year-old play his former youth club Napoli at the beginning of the month.

Izzo did not fail to impress when up against Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain helping his club earn a point in the 0-0 draw.
