Arsenal are tracking the progress of Malaga striker Salomon Rondon with a view to signing the Venezuelan forward, reports skysports.com.
With 14 goals in 29 appearances in La liege, the 21-year-old has made quiet an impression this season.
And with Nicklas Bendtner expected to leave the club this summer, Rondon's big frame would make him the ideal replacement at Arsenal.
Representatives from Arsenal were said to be in Spain over the weekend, and watched him score in his side's win over Athletico Madrid.
Reports in Spain suggest Arsenal would need as much as £18 million to lure the South American forward away from Malaga.
