Arsenal are reportedly one of a host of clubs battling to sign Metz's brilliant young prospect Mirza Mustafic.
The Bosnia-born midfielder is currently playing in France, but is a youth international with Luxembourg.
His performances with Metz have caught the eye of a number of clubs, and reports claim the Gunners, Borussia Moenchengladbach and PSV Eindhoven are among those keen on landing his signature.
Mustafic is already being heralded in Bosnia as the 'new Miralem Pjanic', due to similarities in his game with the Roma star.
"It is true, there are many open options for my son," his father Sakib Mustafic told Avaz.
"But before we will decide, I would like to speak with Miralem Pjanic's father as he went through all this before me.
"But I can confirm that my son will play for a big European club next season. And in the next few months we will decide where he will move."
