Gunners board eyeing goal machine but Chelsea and West Ham are also interested.
Arsenal will face a battle to sign Vitesse Arnham goal-machine Wilfried Bony this summer, reports the Daily Star.
It is understood that members of the Gunners board are keen to land the 24-year-old who has been compared to former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.
But boss Arsene Wenger is thought to favour his compatriot Loic Remy, who has impressed in the Premier League since joining QPR in January.
If the Gunners do pursue Bony, who has bagged a stunning 37 goals in 32 matches for club and country this season, they will face a fight for his signature, with Chelsea and West Ham also tracking the Ivory Coast international.
Bony’s contract expires in 2015 and the forward has made no secret of his desire to secure a summer move to the Premier League.
“I’m very interested in the Premier League and the atmosphere in England, it’s a wonderful league and we will see what happens,” the powerful forward said last week.
“For me the Premier League is the top league in Europe but the Bundesliga is also good. France, Italy and Spain, they’re all good too but England I think would be perfect.”
