The Gunners have been linked with a move for the striker during the last two transfer windows, as he has struggled in patches during his time in the Spanish capital.
He has however scored over 110 goals in all competitions since signing from Lyon in 2009, and would provide welcome depth to a position where the North Londoners have been short in numbers.
Fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud is Arsenal’s top league goal scorer this season with fourteen, with midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who missed three-and-a-half months through injury, next on the list with nine.
Arsenal’s win over Hull City on Sunday afternoon kept them in fourth place with three games to play, as Arsene Wenger looks to continue his record of securing qualification for the Champions League for an sixteenth year.
