Arsenal are reportedly competing with Manchester City and Liverpool in the race to reward PSV forward Cody Gakpo away from Holland.
Mikel Arteta is desperate to strengthen his attack this month, with the Gunners claiming more red cards in their five matches this year than goals in 2022.
The North London side have returned to the nets only once since the start of the year, with the club failing to score in their last four matches in all competitions.
And with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang facing an uncertain future at the Emirates, Arsenal know they have to bring in a new forward to stand any chance of finishing in the top four.
Arsenal were keen to field Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina, but the player is set to join Juventus instead.
He was then linked with making a move for Real Sociedad star Alexander Isaacs or Everton giant centre-forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
But now FT Mercato has added another name to the mix for PSV’s prolific winger Gakpo.
French news outlets claim Arsenal are swooning in to sign him before the winter transfer window slams shut.

However, he has also announced that both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are keeping an eye on the player.
Although this hasn’t stopped Arsenal from being interested, with that said they will look to catch him if Aubameyang moves.
The Gabon international has reportedly introduced himself to Barcelona, although boss Xavi prefers a move for Alvaro Morata over the FA Cup 2020 winner.
Gakpo, who is worth around £25 million, has scored ten goals and 11 assists in 28 games across all competitions in this period.
The four-cap Dutch international recently insisted he was going to extend his stay at PSV, but admitted he was being pursued by several clubs.
He added: “It looks like I’m going to have to renew my contract.
“The clubs who want something also know me, I’ve talked about it with my agent.
“Very interesting clubs have been added, but we’ll have to see what the first step is.”
