Arsene Wenger is seriously in search of a lethal goal machine to bolster his squad ahead of this Premier League season.
Arsenal have shifted their attention to Algeria international Islam Slimani, who netted 27 times in 33 league games for Sporting Lisbon during a prolific 2015-16 campaign.
The 27-year-old also has a fine record at international level having scored 23 goals in 43 senior appearances for Algeria.
Noticias Minuto claims Arsenal and Liverpool are both in the race to sign the star and have both seen a €25.3m (£20.1m) bid rejected for Slimani.
The report further suggested the 6’2 tall striker has a €30m (£23.8m) release clause in his Sporting contract and won’t be allowed to leave for anything less than €35m.
Slimani who is good in the air would be a perfect replacement for injured England Striker Danny Welbeck.
