Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign highly-rated Latvian striker Artjoms Rudnevs.
The Lech Poznan forward is being coveted by a string of top clubs across Europe, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger one of those taking a keen interest in the player.
Barcelona, Galatasaray and Juventus are also thought to be interested in the player, who has impressed with his form in the Polish and Europa League.
Rudnevs is aware of the interest in his services from clubs like Arsenal, and admitted that joining the Gunners would be a 'sensational' move for his career.
“My agent is working on several issues. Barcelona might be my favourites at the moment but the Premier League attracts me,” he said.
"I know that Arsenal have seen me in action and have asked my agent. It would be sensational because for me their game is amazing. I cherish my future."
Arsenal are thought to be in the mood for a striker as a potential replacement for Nicklas Bendtner, who appears set for an Emirates exit after struggling to find regular first team football with the north London club.
With 12 goals in all competitions this season, including a hat-trick against Juventus, the player's stock continues to rise. Arsenal appear now to be favourites, and could look to move quickly this month as interest rises in Rudnevs.
