Arsenal is battling Newcastle United for the signature of Marcus Thuram after his good first half of the season.
The son of Lilian Thuram has developed into a lethal goalscorer at Borussia Monchengladbach and could leave them at the end of this season.
His current deal expires then and the Germans have unsuccessfully tried to get him on a new one.
It seems the attacker wants to leave, which gives Arsenal a chance to sign him.
However, The Sun insists the interest from Newcastle United is strong and the Magpies could even pay a small fee to sign him in January.
Just Arsenal Opinion
We have a strong attack, but squad depth is a problem for us now and we must address it while we can.
Thuram will give us a new edge in attack and his goalscoring form has been superb this season.
But waiting until the summer to sign him for free is risky, so we have to make a January plan for him and agree to pay Gladbach a small fee to secure his signature early.
As we progress, the best Christmas gift we can get is for our players to return from the World Cup injury-free and in fine form.
