Arsenal have made contact with Eintracht Frankfurt about Jesper Lindstrom, according to reports in Germany. 

The Danish winger helped the Bundesliga side win the Europa League last season, earning them a spot in the Champions League for this campaign.

And as reported by Bild, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has opened talks with Frankfurt over a move for Lindstrom in the January transfer window.

Despite surprisingly topping the table after seven games, Arteta is said to be keen on strengthening his small squad, after last season saw them lose several players in January, fail to bring anyone in and eventually miss out on the top four by two points.

Winger Nicolas Pepe is out on loan at Nice and talented teenager Marquinhos may join him in leaving on loan in January, with versatile star Lindstrom a potential backup option on the flanks who is also capable of covering at No 10.

Five-cap international Lindstrom was named Bundesliga Rookie of the Season last year in his first campaign in Germany after a move from Brondby in his homeland.

The 22-year-old has scored three goals in all competitions so far this season, including the winner as Frankfurt beat Marseille 1-0 away from home in Europe last week. 

Bild also state a fee of around £17million could be enough to get the deal done. 

Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk is also thought to be of interest to the north London side.
