Arsenal are reportedly considering tabling an offer for Rosenborg's Daniel Braathen.
The Gunners have been monitoring the 22-year-old for some time, even before he joined the Trondheim-based club.
Only an injury disrupted plans to offer Braathen a trial at Highbury and Arsene Wenger has continued to track the Norwegian prospect.
"I have had several talks with Wenger regarding Braathen and he is interested," his agent Jan Olsson told Adresseavisen.
"Wenger has studied Daniel a long time."
The forward came on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal in this season's UEFA Champions League and also figured in the 5-1 drubbing at Highbury that sealed the North Londoners' qualification to the knockout stages.
The transfer window may be shut until the summer, but Olsson seems convinced that there could be developments later in the year regarding his client.
