Is Arsene Wenger going to spend some of transfer budget on a League of Ireland player?
According to reports in the Evening Echo, Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley was in Turner's Cross last Friday night for the Rebels 3-0 win over Munster rivals Limerick to assess full-back Brian Lenihan.
Lenihan is capable of playing in midfield as well as defence, and he recently made his debut for Ireland’s under-21 team against Germany.
If Lenihan does complete a move to the Emirates, his former club College Corinthians would also benefit from any deal.
Arsenal had been linked to a summer move for Seamus Coleman before the Donegal player signed a new five-year deal at Goodison Park and will be hoping that Lenihan proves equally as effective should they strike a deal.
