Arsenal are lining up a move for Everton striker Louis Saha, according to the Daily Mail.

Saha has been in talks with Everton over a new deal, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

However, the French striker has demanded a £60,000-a-week deal for three years which has led to a stalemate in contract negotiations.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is now thought to be set to swoop for Saha if an agreement between the player and Everton cannot be agreed.

Wenger is desperate to strengthen his strike force in the January transfer window with Robin van Persie looking likely to miss most of the season with an ankle injury.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently praised Saha saying: "When Saha plays 10 games on the trot you can compare him with any striker."

The 31 year-old has been one of the only positives for Everton in their season so far scoring ten league goals and is the Toffees top scorer.
