Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Championship starlet Oliver Burke, according to The Sun (via the Daily Express).

The Premier League giants, who currently sit third in the English top-flight standings after defeating West Brom 2-0 on Thursday night in London, have registered an interest in Nottingham Forest’s highly-rated winger ahead of the forthcoming summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old, who made his senior international debut for Scotland back in March against Denmark, has scored two goals and provided one assist in 19 appearances in all competitions for Forest so far this season.

England internationals Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be sold by the Gunners once the current 2015/16 campaign has concluded, with the report suggesting that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has identified the Football League star as a potential replacement for the outgoing duo.

Burke has been in good form for interim boss Paul Williams’ Championship side this term, with Gunners chief scout Steve Rowley said to be closely monitoring the youngster.
