Arsenal are set to pull a scalp from their bitter rivals Tottenham, with reports that they are looking to land Spurs target Alexandre Pato.
The Brazilian striker who is contracted to Corinthians but currently on loan at Sao Paulo has been linked to Tottenham, with reports stating that they had an 8 million pounds offer being readied for the 26-year-old.
Liverpool are also interested and are even rumoured to have agreed terms in principles for the former AC Milan striker.
Alexandre Pato who joined AC Milan from Internacional in 2007, before moving back to his native Brazil to join Corinthians has scored 19 times in 59 appearances for Sao Paulo where he is currently on loan.
The 27 cap Brazilian international is looking to reignite his career that started on a downhill path during his latter days at AC Milan due to series of injuries, and it seems Arsenal have decided to be the ones to give him a chance at it, with the Gunners readying a January bid for the striker.
