Arsenal have reportedly been boosted by the news that Bayer Leverkusen forward Kevin Volland would be “very interested” in moving to the Premier League.

German Volland is quoted by Goal as saying: “The Premier League is a very interesting league for me.

“The pace is extremely high, the league requires a lot of willingness to run – that would be fine for me. But you never know what will happen.

“I am also not the type of person who says, ‘I have to play again in England, Italy or Spain’. I feel very comfortable in Leverkusen and leave everything open.”

This is seen as a boost to Arsenal who are reportedly interested in the 27-year-old.

In December, it was claimed we were considering a January move for him but, as we know, that never happened.

Volland can play on the right-hand side, as a left-footed forward. Perhaps what is really catching Arsenal’s eye right now is his ability to play from the left, though.

This season, Volland is up to seven appearances from the left-wing, with the rest coming at centre-forward. A forward comfortable on the left would be useful for Arsenal. They rely on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or teenagers in the position right now.

Perhaps this is also a hint of the uncertain futures of Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. The media regularly link the duo with transfers away from Arsenal given their refusal to sign new contracts so far.
