Arsenal and Chelsea are chasing Sampdoria striker Giampaolo Pazzini.

Italian sources say Arsenal are willing to offer £14 million for Pazzini, who has been likened to crocked Gunner Robin van Persie.

Samp are seeking closer to £22 million for the Italy international.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has already admitted his admiration for Pazzini: "Pazzini? I love him so much, we'll see, but we cannot think of bringing all the players who we like to Chelsea."
