Arsenal produced a dramatic late comeback to defeat Luton Town 4-3 on Tuesday evening. 

The Gunners went ahead at Kenilworth Road courtesy of Gabriel Martinelli’s goal, before Gabriel Osho drew the hosts level.

Mikel Arteta’s side regained the lead before the break, though, as Gabriel Jesus headed the visitors in front.

The second half was equally as frantic, with the Hatters once again drawing level through Elijah Adebayo, before former Chelsea man Ross Barkley gave Rob Edwards’ side a shock lead.

Luton’s last didn’t last long, though, as Kai Havertz netted his third goal of the season.

The game looked to be heading for a draw, before Declan Rice’s header in the seventh minute of added time earned Arteta’s side a remarkable victory and a crucial three points.

With the January transfer window fast approaching, it has emerged that Arsenal were one of two Premier League sides to scout a Bundesliga star last weekend.

Frimpong has been in sensational form so far this season

As per 90min, both the Gunners and Liverpool had scouts in attendance at Bayer Leverkusen’s 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, casting an eye over full-back Jeremie Frimpong.

Leverkusen, managed by former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso, have taken the Bundesliga by storm this season and currently sit top of the table after an unbeaten start to the campaign.

Frimpong, 22, has been in fine form so far this season scoring six goals and providing seven assists in 18 matches across all competitions.

The one-time Netherlands international joined Leverkusen from Scottish side Celtic back in 2021, and has since made 113 appearances for his current side across all competitions.

The Dutchman can operate in a number of roles on the right, but is primarily deployed in a wing-back role for Alonso’s side.

Frimpong’s current contract is set to run until 2028, but the report claims that the deal includes a £35 million release clause that is set to expire at the end of the current season.
