Arsenal have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Torino winger Alessio Cerci, reports the Daily Express.

The 26-year-old Italy international has been in scintillating form in the early part of the 2013/14 campaign, scoring eight goals in 12 Serie 'A' matches, which has attracted a growing list of admirers.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing Cerci to the Emirates Stadium, as he looks to ease the goalscoring burden on Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal will face competition for the player's signature from Manchester United, with the Premier League champions having monitored the Torino forward for some time.

David Moyes must decide whether he wants to press ahead with an attempt to lure the £14million-rated forward to Old Trafford, who is also being monitored by Champions League rivals Juventus.

It's thought that Cerci would prefer to remain in Turin to protect his chances of making Cesare Prandelli's squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil next summer.
