Arsenal have joined London rivals, Chelsea in the chase for Philippe Coutinho of Barcelona.
According to a report by Le10Sport, however, the Gunners are in pole position to land the Brazilian midfielder.
Although Coutinho, who joined the Spanish champions from Liverpool, is currently on loan at Bayern Munich, the club are not willing to spend £105 million on him in the summer. He also reported to be on the list of players to be cleared out of Barcelona to make way for fresh signings.
Arsenal are believed to have contacted Kia Joorabchian, his agent, over a deal.
