Arsenal have formally approached Marseille for World Cup 2018 winner Florian Thauvin, as reported by La Provence (via Get French Football News).

Gunners are one of the most active Premier League sides in transfer market, as North London side have already bought Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba and completed a loan move for Dani Ceballos.

As reported by David Ornstein from BBC, Arsenal will also announce about signing Nicolas Pepe from Lille, one of the most wanted players in the market and are on the verge of completing the deal for Celtic captain Kieran Tierney.

Despite the approach, Gunners are currently concentrated in their top priorities, however, a deal for Thauvin, who scored 16 goals and provided 8 assists in Ligue 1 last season, could also be possible.
