Arsenal are reportedly planning a £30million swoop for Hirving Lozano to replace wantaway striker Alexis Sanchez.
Manchester United have also previously indicated their interest in PSV Eindhoven’s talisman.
The Dutch giants are not willing to sell the in-demand 22-year-old for less than his £30m release clause, according to Football.London.
He has attracted interest from a host of clubs after becoming the first player to score seven goals in his first eight games in the Eredivisie.
After bagging a brace against Vitesse on Sunday, he now has nine league goals to his name.
Lozano left Pachuca in June 2017 to sign a six-year deal with Phillip Cocu’s side for a fee of £7.04m.

The Mexican already has more than 20 caps for his country and he is expected to be a key figure during next year’s World Cup contest.
Arsenal have previously sent chief scout Steve Rowley to monitor the 22-year-old.
Sanchez’s contract is due to expire at the Emirates this summer and Arsene Wenger is already having to consider his replacement.
The French boss has admitted that he might be forced to accept a January offer for the 28-year-old to prevent losing him on a free.
He came close to joining Manchester City earlier this year, but the deal collapsed after Wenger failed to sign Thomas Lemar.
The Citizens are expected to now wait until next summer before making another move.
