Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed he is interested in signing Lyon winger Hatem Ben Arfa.
Ben Arfa is one of the most sought-after young players in Europe after impressing for Lyon in the last few seasons.
Manchester United were linked with a move for Ben Arfa and team-mate Karim Benzema last month, while Spurs have held a long-term interest in the former.
The 21-year-old still has two years to run on his contract and Lyon are hoping to tie him down to a new long-term deal.
Wenger is a big admirer of his fellow Frenchman and admits he would be at the head of the queue if Ben Arfa became available.
"If Ben Arfa is for sale, then we are very interested," Wenger told French tv programme Telefoot.
"He is a great player and Arsenal is a potential destination for any great player."
Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Barnsley goalkeeper Heinz Muller.
Muller impressed earlier this season at Oakwell before suffering a serious knee injury which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Wenger could be in the market for a new keeper in the summer as doubts surround the future of Jens Lehmann.
