The forward - whose current contract will keep him at the club to until 2021 - will be watched from the stands by Arsenal scout and former player Luis Boa Morte on Sunday in a potential title-deciding clash against Porto.

Boa Morte, who made 30 appearances for the Gunners, has been working as a representative to the club for some time now and regularly scouts Portuguese League games for Arsenal.


The Gunners will be hoping to make a number of additions this summer in an attempt to claw back a Champions League spot. 

With the Europa League Arsenal's only route to the Champions League this season, Arsenal's ability offer Champions League football next season will no doubt have some affect their upcoming transfer dealings.
