Arsenal hierarchy have set their sights on Manchester City’s out-of-favour striker Wilfried Bony.
According to FootTheBall souces the Ivory Coast forward has been told by new boss Pep Guardiola that he is free to leave the club.
Arsenal are desperate for a striker and could make a bid in the region of £30 million.
Arsenal boss Wenger was chasing Lyon striker Alaxandre Lacazette, but the French club pulled the plug on the deal.
Bony has been left-out of City’s squad for the Champions League play-off’s and Pep has told the player that he is free to go this summer.
Wenger however, is not very keen about signing the 27-year-old, but the club hierarchy are trying to pursued the French tactician.
Fans of the London club have long been asking for the Gunners to sign a high-profile striker, and a bid Bony is doubtful to go down well with supporters.
