Arsenal continue the search for new players by sending scouts to watch French duo Maxime Gonalons and Etienne Capoue last weekend.

Arsenal sent scouts to watch two French international midfielders in Ligue 1 last weekend, according to reports.

The Gunners were at Lyon's 4-0 rout of Bordeaux on Sunday to get a closer look at Maxime Gonalons and also watched Toulouse starlet Etienne Capoue, according to Sport365.

Gonalons was on the winning side in that match and the 23-year-old holding midfielder already has six caps for his country.

Capoue is also a young midfielder with a big reputation and helped Toulouse come from 2-0 down to draw with Troyes on Sunday.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including Tottenham Hotspur following a breakthrough season in his home country.

Both players are established members of the French international set-up and have been called up consistently by Les Blues boss Didier Deschamps this season.
