Arsenal have joined Manchester United in the race to sign highly-rated Russian striker Aleksandr Sobolev, according to reports.

The 22-year-old, who plays for Russian Premier League side Krylia Sovetov, recently earned a first call-up to his country’s senior squad after a blistering start to the campaign in which he has scored 10 goals and assisted three others.

An earlier report indicated that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was interested in signing Sobolev and The Sun now claims that Unai Emery’s side have joined the Red Devils in keeping tabs on the striker.

Speaking to Sport Express, the attacker confirmed that the Gunners had sent scouts out to watch him in action last weekend ahead of a potential move.

“I was told after the Sochi game that Arsenal scouts came to see me,” Sobolev said. “In my opinion this is true. I am not 100 per cent sure, but this is what I was told.
