Arsenal have emerged as shock contenders to sign Chelsea forward Timo Werner during the ongoing transfer window.
The Germany international had a difficult second season with the Blues, registering just 11 goals and six assists.
Ahead of next season, he is keen to move on to play regular first-team football, but prefers to stay in the Premier League.
Newcastle United are known to be interested in him, but Defensa Central claim that the Gunners are also in the transfer mix.
The Gunners are eyeing another versatile forward to add to their ranks, and they could explore a potential deal for Werner.
The big question remains whether Chelsea are prepared to do business with the Gunners, who are their main top-four rivals.
The north London giants have had a superb pre-season with a 100 per cent record, and Chelsea will be wary of boosting them.
