Reports today suggest that both Arsenal and Liverpool have a strong interest in Sassuolo striker Gregoire Defrel.

The Mail report that Arsenal have already sent scouts to watch the French striker three times this season, and the striker has been in the sort of red-hot form that attracts attention.

The 25-year old has netted a goal in each of his last four games and the paper also reports that Liverpool have watched the striker.

Defrel has spent his entire career in Italy, first at Parma, follwed by Cesena.

He moved to Sassuolo in the summer of 2015 and he has scored 11 goals in all competitions for the club.

Over the summer Crystal Palace and Swansea were reported to have been interested but the flying start to the new term has seen some of the Premier League's biggest names take a look.
