Arsenal face competition from Serie 'A' side Inter Milan in the race to sign striker Moussa Sow.

The 25-year-old Lille striker was linked with a move to the Emirates this summer, with Arsene Wenger securing the services of Gervinho from the Ligue 1 outfit, but not his teammate Sow.

Prolific in the French domestic league, Sow has caught the attention of recently appointed Inter boss Claudio Ranieri, with reports in Italy claiming the manager is targeting the Senegalese striker in a New Year swoop.

Arsenal are also being linked with a January move for the player, who has struck three times in nine games so far this term for Les Dogues.

After a poor start to he season, the Gunners' worst in over 50 years, Wenger is again expected to dive into the transfer window when it re-opens on January first.

The Frenchman spent big in August, bringing Per Mertesacker, Mikel Arteta, Yossi Benayoun and a host of other players to Arsenal in a bid to strengthen the team following Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri's departures.


However, injuries have taken their toll at the start of the campaign, and the Emirates outfit sit in 15th place in the Barclays Premier League and desperate for reinforcements.

Sow is one of the players who could move to Arsenal from the Stade Lille-Metropole, although a fight is clearly on between some of Europe's top clubs for the African hitman.
