Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure and could make a move at the end of the season.
The former France Under-21 international has been in sensational form for the Hornets this season, scoring seven goals and registering three assists from 26 Premier League appearances.
His impressive performances are believed to have caught the eye of several potential suitors with the Gunners and arch rivals Tottenham said to be leading the race for his signature.
Arsene Wenger is still looking to add more attacking quality to his ranks despite already signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while it has been suggested Spurs see the player as the ideal long-term replacement for Moussa Dembele.
Watford are struggling to agree a new deal with Doucoure and are believed to have slapped a £25million price tag on the players head in the hope it will scare off interested parties.
