Arsenal are reportedly lining up an approach to sign Red Bull Salzburg striker Noah Okafor this summer.

The north London giants are likely to strengthen their attack ahead of next season and a new forward could be prioritised.

According to The Mail, Okafor is one of the top names on the club's radar and he could be prised away for around £25 million.

Aside from the Gunners, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United have also been linked with the highly-rated Swiss forward.

Okafor is a striker by trade. He has managed 15 goal contributions from 30 appearances for Salzburg in the current campaign.

Arsenal currently have Gabriel Jesus as their number one striker with Eddie Nketiah providing the back-up when required.

There is also Folarin Balogun who has been in splendid form on loan at Reims and Mikel Arteta has a big decision to make.

If the Gunners were to move for Okafor, it is probably an indication that Nketiah or Balogun could be sold this summer.
