Arsenal have reportedly positioned themselves at the front of the queue to sign in-demand striker Marcus Thuram from Guingamp.

Arsenal have increased their efforts to land Guingamp striker Marcus Thuram, according to a report.

The 21-year-old has attracted rumoured interest from the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and the Gunners in recent weeks.

Thuram, the son of French football legend Lilian, netted a 93rd-minute winner to knock Paris Saint-Germain out of the Coupe de la Ligue earlier this month and has nine goals in 21 appearances overall this term.

Amid talk of a potential transfer battle for the ex-France Under-20s international's signature, TeamTalk reports that Arsenal have stepped up their interest in an attempt to move to the front of the queue.

Scouts from Arsenal, Tottenham and Man United are believed to have been present for Ligue 1 strugglers Guingamp's recent 1-0 loss to Saint-Etienne.
