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.

There are a number of English clubs tracking Lenihan with new Aston Villa assistant manager Roy Keane reportedly an admirer of the defender while Bournemouth are also interested in his services.

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.

He is expected to form part of Noel King's plans for Ireland's under-21 side for the qualifying campaign for the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championships.

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.
