Arsenal could do battle with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur who are massive favourites to sign Napoli midfielder Allan when the January transfer window reopens in the coming weeks.
The report from footballfancast reveals that the Gunners could yet join their rivals in the bid to sign the Brazilian midfielder.
Tottenham Hotspur have already concluded plans to make a bid for the 27-year-old in the New Year.
Italian publication Calcio Napoli24 is adamant that Tottenham will splash the sum of £35m (€40m) on Allan when the transfer window reopens.
Tottenham Hotspur made history for the wrong reason at the end of the last transfer window.

Spurs didn’t make any signing thereby becoming the first team to do so.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy would be hoping to make that right in the upcoming transfer market.
Arsenal might rival Levy and Tottenham for Allan with the club in search of midfield reinforcements.
Two Arsenal midfielders namely Aaron Ramsey and Mohamed ElNeny could leave the Gunners in the New Year.
Welsh international star Ramsey is on his way out of Arsenal after he was not offered a new contract, while ElNeny is out-of-favour amidst strong interest from Premier League side Leicester City.
