Arsenal are attempting to intercept the Juventus bid for Sead Kolasinac, whose Schalke 04 contract expires in June.
The 23-year-old left-back will be a free agent at the end of the season and has refused to pen an extension.
Juve have been heavily linked with the Bosnia international, either for free in the summer or in January if Patrice Evra leaves.
However, Tuttomercatoweb claim this evening that Arsenal have entered the fray with their own proposal for Kolasinac.
Schalke seem unwilling to release him mid-season, but the Gunners can offer higher wages than the Bianconeri are prepared to reach.
