Serie A giants are locked up in transfer battle ahead of the main match on Friday next week with top EUFA league teams facing huge competition.
A 23-year-old hitman, Mauro Icardo who starred for Serie A giants Inter Milan last season is the latest catch placed on the radar with price tag of £ 53.2 million.
The Gunners Coach Arsene Wenger and Chealsea boss, Antonio Conte have an eye on the Italian striker as they seek to upgrades for their inconsistent teams.
Inter Milan’s rivals Napoli have also launched a hunt for the striker following a £ 75 million departure of Gonzalo Higuain a fortnight ago.
Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri said he was in search of a talismanic forward.
Arsene Wenger is fiercely seeking to correct a defensive injury crisis at the Emirates.
But new Inter head coach Frank de Boer has confirmed to Icardi that he will not be moved on this summer, despite the mammoth offer on the table, according to news wires.
Italian website Calciomercato reported that Arsenal have lodged a £14m bid for Granit Xhaka who shone with Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga and with Switzerland at Euro 2016.
Watford and Bundesliga outfit Schalke are also tracking the player.
