An un-named Premier League club has launched a bid to secure the services of Nigerian striker Uche Nwofor from Dutch side VVV Venlo, reports the Daily Express.
The powerful forward has been likened to Aston Villa's Christian Benteke.
Arsenal, Newcastle and Tottenham have all been linked with the 21-year-old, who scored 10 goals in the Eredivisie last season and are believed to be tracking the situation.
Those goals however, were not enough to keep Venlo in the top division as they succumbed to relegation.
It is now thought the club are keen to get rid of some of their prize assets as they look to lower the wage bill and settle in to life in the second division.
Nwofor only has one cap for his country so far so any prospective move to the Premier League may be hampered by his inability to gain a work permit.
Arsenal are used to this situation having sent a number of prospects to the continent in order for them to gain a European passport.
If the Nigerian international can seal a move away from his current club, Roda JC Kerkrade is already being linked with signing him on loan for the season whilst his wait for European citizenship continues.
