Arsenal are at the top of the queue to sign AC Milan striker Suso thanks to Monchi's upcoming arrival as sports director.
The Gunners are expected to storm 25-year-old Suso this summer as they compete for the Champions League again.
But they are not the only club that haunts the former Liverpool striker, who also faces Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
However, Arsenal are ahead of their rivals in the Premier League thanks to the Monchi link, reports Italian outlet Tuttosport.
Monchi is expected to be reunited with Arsenal boss Unai Emery after the pair worked together in Seville. Monchi has tried signing Suso while he's with Roma, and will begin negotiations in his new club when Unai Emery launches, Sportsmole says.
The arrival of Monchi at The Emirates will also put Arsenal in pole position to sign the sensation of Benfica's Alex Grimaldi, the Express says.
23-year-old left-back Grimaldo is one of the top-rated players outside European top leagues, and has been linked to both the Gunners and Premier League rivals Manchester City.
Since the full-backs are a problem for the Gunners, it is believed that they are also interested in the left-back of Porto Alex Telles.
Ever Banega, Ismaila Sarr and Nicolas Tagliafico are among the other players who joined Arsenal this summer.
