Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Dynamo Moscow striker Aleksandr Kokorin, according to reports.
Reports in Russia claim that the 24-year-old has been targeted by Arsene Wenger after missing out on Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema.
Benzema tweeted this week that he will not be leaving Real, dismissing media reports by writing: “For all those clowns who want to make believe things at my fans. Here this is my home ! #HalaMadridYNadaMas”
Kokorin, 24, has been an integral part of the Dynamo team since breaking through in the 2012/13 season, and has made 32 appearances for Russia.
