Arsenal have entered the battle to sign Borussia Monchengladbach striker Alassane Plea, according to reports in the German media.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with the Bundesliga marksman in recent weeks, but it is believed that the Gunners, Spurs and Leicester City are also scouting the forward.
Gladbach are reportedly prepared to let Plea go for €24m (£21m) when the transfer window reopens as the German club look to balance the books during the ongoing global health crisis.
The France international could well be seen as a possible replacement for captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has yet to sign a new deal despite only having 13 months left on his contract at the Emirates.
Plea is, though, far less prolific, having scored just nine goals in 29 appearances for Gladbach this season. However, his all-round game may have attracted manager Mikel Arteta with the 27-year-old having provided eight assists in all competitions.
