Talksport understands that Arsenal are plotting a January move for Celta Vigo striker Nolito.
The 28 year alerted a number of potential suitors with thirteen goals in thirty-six appearances last season while his form also earned him international recognition.
He won his first senior Spain cap in a friendly defeat to World champions Germany last November, with his second and last international appearance coming back in June.
Nolito moved to Vigo from Benfica in the summer of 2013 and has since played for them eighty times in all competitions, scoring thirty-two goals.
He netted in his sides shock 4-1 win over Barcelona last week, and his five goals in his last five outings has seen him shoot to joint top on the La Liga scoring charts alongside Real Madrid pair Cristiano Ronalo and Karim Benzema.
Eduardo Berizzo’s side take on Getafe on Friday evening, with Nolito favourite to open the scoring at 7/2.
