Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona are all chasing the signature of Borussia Dortmund forward Mohamed Zidan.

According to the player's father, Abdullah, Zidan’s performances have caught the eye of several of the Premier League's 'top four'.

Gunner manager Arsene Wenger is looking to add more firepower to his strike force in the summer after a January deal for Bordeaux forward Marouane Chamakh failed to materialise.

Arsenal have been heavily reliant on Dutch ace Robin van Persie in the past couple of season and his long term knee injury could have cost his side the Premier League title.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Feguson is also in search for another striker after limiting Michael Owen’s and Dimitar Berbatov’s first team appearances this season.

The Egyptian striker joined Dortmund from Hamburg in 2008 with Croatian international Mladen Petrić moving in the opposite direction.

Zidan has made 33 appearances for Egypt scoring seven times and recently helped his country win a third successive Africa Cup of Nations crown.
