Arsenal, Southampton and Napoli are set to battle it out for the signature of Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso, according to reports.
L’Equipe claim the Gunners and the Saints are rivals for the signing of Lyon’s 21-year-old star, although Napoli have made the first move to land him.
The Serie A club have met the entourage of Tolisso, who can also operate at right-back, while the two Premier League clubs bide their time in the background.
The France Under-21 star has scored five goals in 28 starts for Lyon this season and is currently out injured with a hip problem.
Arsenal and Southampton are both on the lookout for reinforcements in midfield this summer with the Gunners set to lose Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky while Victor Wanyama could be on his way from St Mary’s.
