Arsenal are currently favourites to land Senegalese striker Moussa Sow in the summer, according to reports.
The 25-year-old forward have enjoyed an impressive season in Ligue 1 this term, scoring 22 goals on the way to a French title with Lille.
Whilst Gervinho has been grabbing most of the gossip column inches up to now, The People claim Arsenal are now 'leading the race' to bring Sow to the Barclays Premier League.
Manchester City are also said to be interested in the former Rennes forward, who played for the French U21 side before switching international allegiances to the African nation in 2009.
Arsene Wenger has admitted that he will be looking to bring 'the right players' to the Emirates this summer, with the Gunners boss expecting to be busy in the transfer market and admitting a list of targets have already been drawn up.
A striker is thought to be high on the Arsenal manager's agenda, with long-term fitness concerns over Robin Van Persie and exit rumours circulating over Nicklas Bendtner and Andrey Arshavin.
Sow's value is not discussed in the British newspaper report, although it's thought that Wenger's French contacts may be key in any potential Arsenal deal.
