Arsenal could sign Aleksandr Kokorin on loan from Dynamo Moscow before the transfer window closes at 6pm this evening.

The Daily Mail understand the Gunners have held talks over a move for the Russia international, who was on a list of potential transfer targets at the start of the weekend.

Although a temporary switch, Arsenal were reportedly keen to have an option to buy clause inserted into the deal, allowing them to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent deal next summer.

Kokorin has scored 45 goals in 193 appearances for Dynamo and, if signed by Arsenal today, would provide some additional back-up for Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.

The Daily Mail add that signing a centre forward is a priority for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today - as well as a holding midfielder - but time is running out for the Gunners to bring anyone in on a permanent basis.

Edinson Cavani would be the dream signing

Arsenal fans were hoping for a marquee name, such as Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani, who was linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium earlier today.

The Daily Mail obtained a photo of Arsene Wenger at Paris airport and claimed the Gunners’ boss had held talks with PSG over a move for both Cavani and Adrien Rabiot on Monday.

Cavani is a striker who could make a huge impact at Arsenal this season, but whether Kokorin could do the same remains to be seen.
