Arsenal boss is desperate to sign £14million France striker Loic Remy in the summer.
Remy has managed to score seven goals in 21 starts this season, despite Nice being fourth from bottom.
His agent Frederic Guerra confirmed: “Arsenal are interested in Loic for next season.”
Remy told The Sun last month: “I often talk about Arsenal with Diaby and Sagna when I am with them in the French team.
“They tell me that when you are at Arsenal you want to stay there for your entire career.”
Milan, Lyon and Bordeaux are also reportedly keeping tabs on the French striker.
