Arsenal are reportedly planning a summer move for in-form Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who is on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Hoffenheim.
The 22-year-old was named Premier League player of the month for March and has been a revelation for the Swans; scoring six goals in 11 games since his January move to South Wales.
This potent form is likely to lead Swansea to explore the possibility of securing a permanent deal for Sigurdsson, although they are likely to face extreme competition for his signature.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are the latest club to have shown an interest in the Iceland international, and Arsene Wenger is plotting an attempt to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in time for next season.
The Arsenal manager has even asked for the lowdown on Sigurdsson from Reading boss Brian McDermott, who sold the youngster to Hoffenheim almost two years ago.
Sigurdsson has certainly impressed since his return to England, and has even drawn comparisons to Chelsea star Frank Lampard from Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers.
"He is in the Frank Lampard mould, he gets into the six-yard box, is willing to get his shot off with his left or right foot and can score with his head like he did at Fulham," Rodgers told the Evening Standard.
He added: "He is still very young but he is a player who can do well at this level, as he has shown. He has the same hunger as Frank, who wanted to be better every single day."
