Known for nurturing talents into super stars, Arsenal are looking to sign Switzerland international and Basel striker Breel Embolo, reports the Metro.
The 18-year-old talented youngster started his youth career with Nordstern. He subsequently moved to Basel in 2010 but made his debut for the club in March last year.
Since making his debut, Embolo has become one of the most sought after youngsters in Swiss football after consistently putting up impressive performance.
However, Arsenal are not left alone in the chase of the player, they have been joined by City rivals Tottenham but Arsenal are understood to be willing to be the most bullish suitor, per Calciomercato.
Arsenal attacking line have been reduced to just Giroud in attack as Welbeck and Walcott are still battling with injuries and Wenger is on the lookout for an attacker.
The report further stated that Basel are willing to let the player leave but for £21 million but Wenger might be willing to pay such amount for a player of his age.
Arsenal will need to bolster their squad if they must win the Premier League that has eluded them for several months.
