Gunners scouts have watched Cornelius over '10 times'

Arsenal are ready to step-up their interest in FC Copenhagen youngster Andreas Cornelius, according to reports in Denmark

The Gunners’ have sent Scandinavia-based scout Bobby Bennett to watch the Danish striker in action ‘over 10 times’.

Highly-rated Cornelius, who has scored 14 goals in 20 matches for Copenhagen this season, has revealed his delight at being scouted by a club as big as Arsenal.

“This is obviously a pat on the back for me knowing that such a big club is watching me. And if they’ve seen me so many times, it shows you it is not just a coincidence”, Cornelius said.

“I do not think about it, because I have a long contract at FC Copenhagen and have developed really well there. As long as there is nothing concrete, then I think only about FC Copenhagen.”

6ft 4in frontman Cornelius has been likened to former Copenhagen striker Nicklas Bendtner due to his excellent technique and astute aerial ability.

The 19-year-old is tied to FCK until 2016 and this week it was revealed Manchester United had a bid of €5 million turned down for him last year.

He’s faster, better in the air, stronger og 90 % more talented player than Bendtner & he just scored a cracker for Denmark vs Czech. I watch him every week and he’ll soon be out of our price range so bye the way …

He’s really really good! And I support the rival team. Scores goal for fun, great aerial ability (he owned the czech defense and peter cech), strength, presence, great with left and right leg. I would buy him before he gets too expensive. Already scored 16 goals in his first season. Have never seen that before in Denmark.
