Arsenal close in on Dinamo Moscow striker Kokorin

Arsenal are nearing a deal for Russian striker Aleksandr Kokorin.

According to Russian publication Gazeta, the Gunners are the frontrunners to sign the talented 24-year-old forward from Dinamo Moscow.

Kokorin has previously been linked with Manchester United, Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Zenit St Petersburg but could now be on his way to the Emirates Stadium according to the report.

With Arsene Wenger missing out on Real Madrid's Karim Benzema and struggling to lure Edinson Cavani from PSG, Kokorin is the latest striker to be linked with the North Londoners who are still planning to attract some new players before the close of the summer transfer window.
