Pogba, 21, has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid for around £80m after establishing himself as a world class talent in Serie A.
A move of that price would almost double the record fee Arsenal paid Real Madrid to sign Mesut Ozil in 2013, and would signal a major statement of intent from the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger has long been known to have been chasing a midfielder, but could miss out on Schneiderlin if he makes the move to Barca. Still, many fans will feel Pogba is a far more exciting move anyway.
