Arsenal, Roma and Sevilla have asked after Jordan Veretout, but the Fiorentina midfielder is in advanced talks with Napoli.
A deal has been considered almost done for several weeks now, but the delay has allowed other sides to push in.
According to L’Equipe, Arsenal are the latest club to have enquired after the 26-year-old, who has also attracted interest from Roma and Sevilla.
However, Veretout continues to favour Napoli, primarily because he only wants to join a side that is in the Champions League.
Fiorentina are demanding €20m for the player after he scored five goals with four assists in 37 competitive games this season.
