Arsenal and Palermo are ready to fight it out to land Mohammed Abdellaoue in January reports talkSPORT.

The 26-year-old Hannover striker has turned in a number of impressive performances in the Bundesliga this season, and has attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the Norwegian international, and is believed to be considering a bid to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in the New Year.

Abdellaoue is under contract in Germany until 2013, and with discussions over a new deal at Hannover moving slowly, Arsenal are monitoring the situation closely.

However, the Barclays Premier League outfit will face competition for his signature in the former of Serie A side Palermo, who are also looking to bolster their attacking options to make a push for UEFA Champions League qualification.

With eight goals in 13 league appearances this season, interest in Abdellaoue is thought to be high, and with Wenger open to the idea of selling misfiring striker Marouane Chamakh, Arsenal could step up their interest in another forward of Moroccan descent.
