However, the North London outfit have been tipped to be ahead of the Red Devils because Man United have not placed Boubakary Soumare as a priority and will not be giving him adequate attention.
The Gunners are reportedly set to part ways with some of their midfielders with Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira being mentioned, the reason why manager Mikel Arteta but bring in a new face to cover in the midfield.
Boubakary Soumare has made 30 appearances for the French Ligue 1 team and has been able to give a good account of himself with his ability to have control of the game with his passes.
He is valued at £22 million and could be a good deal for the Gunners and will be the third player from Lille to Arsenal if he signs to add to the list of Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Magalhaes.
