Arsenal look to have missed out on Russian ace Aleksandr Kokorin, with Dinamo Moscow reportedly turning down a bid from the Premier League side.
Kokorin has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, however, The Telegraph reports Dinamo have rejected a bid from Arsenal to take the striker on loan this season.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was reportedly keen to take the Manchester United target on a one-year loan deal with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the loan period.
According to the report, Dinamo Moscow were unwilling to accept the terms of the deal.
It means Wenger will have to continue his search for a striker on deadline day, with recent reports suggesting the Gunners will now shift their focus completely on Paris Saint-Germain ace Edinson Cavani.
Cavani would be a massive coup for Arsenal with Wenger looking to take some of the goalscoring responsibility off Olivier Giroud.
