Arsenal are keeping track of Valencia striker Francisco "Paco" Alcacer wherein they have sent out scouts for the fourth time in a month's time to further scrutinise the promising talent's capabilities.

The 20-year-old is a product of Valencia's youth system, who eventually played for the club's B-side before being loaned out for a season to Getafe in 2012.

He was able to feature 24 times in all competitions that term, netting 4 and turning provider once.

One of the most impressive part of his resume, however, is the fact that he was constantly selected by Spain's youth team since he was 16, which could only mean that "he's got it."

Currently, he has made 23 appearances in all competitions for Los Che, with 10 goals and 3 assists to his name in just 15 starts, while scoring the decider against Barcelona back in February, giving them a 3-2 victory.

Alcacer is suggested to be valued in the region of £5million, but his stocks might still rise or otherwise, depending on how he performs for the remainder of this year's campaign.
