Arsenal have held talks with the agent of Red Bull Leipzig star Emil Forsberg with a view to signing the Swede this summer.
Unai Emery was appointed new Arsenal boss last week but head of recruitment Sven Mislintat has been working hard behind the scenes to line up new signings for the Spaniard.
Forsberg, 26, joined Leipzig in 2015 and the speculation over his future affected his form last season, where he scored just five in 27 matches.
The Swedish international tweeted: ‘Thanks for everything’ after he was sent off in Leipzig’s clash with Hoffenheim in late April in what turned out to be Forsberg’s final appearance of the season.
Thanks for everything.

Forsberg is rated at around £47million and Arsenal have held talks with the player’s representatives over a move to the Emirates, according to Swedish publication Expressen.
Atletico Madrid and Juventus are also said to be interested in the midfielder but he favours a move to the Premier League.
