Arsenal's pursuit of Eden Hazard could have hit a snag with a host of European clubs also tracking the winger, according to sport.co.uk.
The Belgian international, currently with Lille, has a contract with the French club until 2015, but is still attracting interest from far and wide.
As well as Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all made enquires as to Hazard's availability.
However, Arsenal's pursuit of the winger could prove fruitless with such big name clubs chasing the 20-year-old, who reports suggest is worried by the Gunners' lack of silverware since their 2005 FA Cup success.
In addition, Lille's asking price of close to €20 million could also price Arsenal out of the market, as the club in the past have been hesitant when it has come to big money signings.
