Arsenal are once again following Nigerian striking starlet Chinedu Ogbuke as they seek to replace former skipper Thierry Henry.

Arsenal were reported to be interested in the 21-year-old in January but the Nigerian international was on the verge of signing for Lokomotiv Moscow, only for the deal to collapse at the last minute. Arsene’s interest in the youngster cooled after that.

The youngster struck twice against Rosenborg last night, whiilst he was being watched by Arsenal scouts.

Arsenal are not the only club rumoured to be interested in the youngster, both Tottenham and Celtic had the Lyn striker watched at the same time as Arsenal.

Any deal for the youngster could be worth anything from £5-£10Million.
