Arsenal are interested in signing Nice goalkeeper David Ospina to provide competition to current number 1 Wojciech Szczesny.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is searching for a new goalkeeper, having seen custodians Lukasz Fabianski and Emiliano Viviano depart this summer, the former at the end of his contract and the latter finishing a loan spell.
According to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, Wenger has taken a liking to Ospina, who is currently starring between the sticks at the World Cup for Colombia.
At club level the 25-year-old turned out for Nice in Ligue 1 last season, the club he has represented for the last six years.
Ospina started his career in his homeland with Atletico Nacional, remaining with the Colombian side until switching to Nice in 2008.
The shot-stopper made 29 appearances in Ligue 1 last term, conceding 25 goals and keeping 13 clean sheets.
Nice finished the campaign only narrowly avoiding relegation, ending in 17th spot with 42 points from 38 games, just two points clear of the drop zone.
