Arsenal will reportedly face competition from four Premier League clubs for the signature of Lens midfielder Cheick Doucoure.
The 22-year-old has been a key player for the Ligue 1 outfit in 2021-22, contributing to five goals in 37 appearances across all competitions.
Doucoure's impressive performances in the French top flight are believed to have caught the eye of a number of European clubs including the Gunners.
The report adds that Wolves have recently joined the race for Doucoure as they view the Mali international as a potential replacement for Ruben Neves, who has been strongly linked with a move away from Molineux.
Arteta is set to be handed a significant transfer budget to bolster his squad this summer, with Doucoure, Leicester City's Youri Tielemans and Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan believed to be among their midfield targets.
