Inter Milan are set to go head-to-head with Arsenal for the signature of Marseille winger Andre Ayew.
The Italian giants reportedly had the Ghanaian watched during the recent Champions League clash between the Ligue 1 side and the Gunners, and are rumoured to be considering a January bid.
Arsene Wenger is also a known admirer of the 21-year-old, and may see the attacker as the ideal cover for Gervinho, who is set for African Cup of Nations duty in the New Year.
Ayew has previously stated his admiration for the Gunners, but if Inter can table a Â£12 million bid, the French side may be forced to cash in on one of their prized assets.
â€˜Iâ€™m in Marseille, it is already big for me,â€™ Ayew told Lâ€™Equipe.
â€˜But there is everything [at Arsenal]. The stadium, the players, the training ground, the budget and the image of the club that makes a lot of players dream.â€™
