Arsenal are one of a handful of European clubs tracking Partizan Belgrade midfielder Mohamed Kamara, according to the player's agent.
The 24-year-old Sierra Leone international, who started his professional career in Finland after seeking asylum in the country, moved to the Serbian SuperLiga champions in 2010, and has built on his reputation after becoming an integral part of the Crno-beli.
Clubs from Italy and Spain have also been alerted to the defensive midfielder's availability, meaning the Gunners won't have things all their own way should they make a move for the player.
"Europe's best are now watching him. From Spain there's Valencia and Atletico Madrid - plus Arsenal," agent Miguel de Medici told TMW.
"There is also Inter Milan from Italy. Inter like him a lot, but they're not alone."
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been linked with a number of defensive midfielders in recent months, with Yann M'Vila the most high-profile after a late summer move for the French international.
The north London outfit have a great tradition of players in the 'enforcer' position, with Patrick Vieira and Gilberto Silva two of the bigger names to represent the club in the Wenger era. Whether Kamara will be the next for Arsenal remains to be seen.
