Arsenal have lodged their interest in Lech Poznan star Artjoms Rudnevs - at least that's according to the player himself.
The 22-year-old striker has bagged four goals in six outings in the Europa League this season and his sharpshooting has attracted interest from a number of top clubs.
Arsenal have now emerged as favourites for the Latvian's signature after he admitted the north London club had been in touch with his agent.
"My agent is working on several issues," he told Polish journalists, according to talkSPORT. "Barcelona might be my favourites at the moment but the Premier League attracts me.
"I know that Arsenal have seen me in action and have asked my agent. It would be sensational because for me their game is amazing. I cherish my future."
Although known to be particularly frugal in the transfer market, Arsene Wenger is thought to have identified a number of targets he would like to bring to Arsenal next month - with Rudnevs apparently now one of them.
The Arsenal boss is also reportedly monitoring Japan sensation Keisuke Honda and Lille wonderkid Eden Hazard as he looks to bolster his attacking options.
Whether Arsenal will launch a January bid for the aforementioned players remains to be seen but, with the chequered injury history of Robin Van Persie and the likelihood of Nicklas Bendtner leaving the Emirates, Wenger is thought to be keen to bring in fresh blood.
