Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Brighton & Hove Albion forward Kaoru Mitoma this summer.
The Japan international has been in brilliant form for the Seagulls this term, bagging nine goals and six assists from 27 outings.
His form has caught the eye of elite European sides and Fabrizio Romano claims that Arsenal and United are among those keen.
The Gunners have already done business with the Seagulls, having signed Ben White and Leandro Trossard over recent windows.
They also attempted to land midfielder Moises Caicedo in January, but the Seagulls made it clear that he was not for sale.
The north London giants are planning to return for Caicedo but it seems that they could also pursue the services of Mitoma.
Meanwhile, United are unlikely to hand the player to the Gunners on a platter and they should provide strong competition.
Mitoma is likely to cost in upwards of £50m in the next transfer window and Brighton are bound to stay firm on their price.
