Lille striker Moussa Sow wants to join up with former strike partner Gervinho and sign for Arsenal.
The Senegalese forward topped the scoring charts in Ligue 1 last season with 25 goals as Lille claimed the domestic double last season.
While Gervinho's form attracted Arsenal, Sow is hoping to catch the attention of the north Londoners as well.
"I want to play at Arsenal," he said. "I think my game is best suited to the Premier League.
"It is my dream and I want to be playing Champions League football.
"Real Madrid? They are one of the best teams in the world.
"We will see what can happen with these clubs before the transfer windows ends."
Arsenal are under pressure to splash out on new resources after a summer of selling continued with the departure of Cesc Fabregas.
Samir Nasri is reported ready to join Fabregas in leaving the club, along with Gael Clichy, whose move to Manchester City went through last month.
