Arsenal are tracking Youssef Msakni, the man dubbed as Tunisia's answer to Lionel Messi, according to talkSPORT.
The 21-year-old scored twice for his country at the recent Africa Cup of Nations, before a quarter-final exit at the hands of Ghana.
Arsene Wenger was seen at the tournament, with reports suggesting he was keeping an eye on Mskani, who has scored four goals in his last five games for club ES Tunis.
French champions Lille have also registered an interest, and are ready to rival the Gunners for his signature at the end of the season.
Arsenal signed Gervinho from Lille last summer, and the north London club are also interested in winger Eden Hazard, who is expected to leave Les Dogues at the end of the season.
A deal for Msakni would need to be in the region of £4 million, and add another youth addition to Wenger's squad amid criticism surrounding his transfer policy and long-term strategy.
It's a policy which has been blamed for the Gunners' exit in the FA Cup, their humiliation at the hands of AC Milan in the Champions League and a seven-year trophy drought.
