The Toon were met with serious resistance from Bayer Leverkusen when attempting to sign the 23-year-old forward last year.

But they are reportedly keen to reignite that interest, with the Gunners also keeping tabs on his situation.

French football expert Jonathan Johnson recently said: “The expectation is that Diaby will now get a move to a big European club, and there is a lot of interest from the Premier League, not just from Arsenal but from Newcastle United as well.”

Diaby has just two years left on his Leverkusen deal and is estimated to cost just north of £50million.

He has nine goals and nine assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances, with three goals in Leverkusen’s run to the Europa League semis, while also bagging 10 caps so far for the French.

Reports suggest Arsenal are in the hot seat to sign him but that the Gunners are expecting to face competition from PSG.

Diaby joined the German side from PSG for for £13million back in 2019.

While Arsenal lead the way at 3/1 to sign him, PSG are fourth and final on the list at 8/1.

Newcastle (5/1) and Bayern Munich (7/1) split the pair in the four-way betting heat.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “A summer move to England looks inevitable at this point for the red-hot Moussa Diaby – and as things stand it’s Arsenal who lead the way in the race for his signature, with Newcastle hot on their heels.”
