The Gunners were quiet once again in the January transfer window, only snapping up Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny, despite the fans again calling for a new striker to be brought in.
Instead, manager Arsene Wenger again appears to be keen on signing unknown players or hot prospects - and his latest target would fir into the latter category.
The Daily Mail report that the Gunners are pursuing Monaco forward Kyllian Mbappe, after the 17-year-old broke a club record on Saturday afternoon.
Mbappe came off the bench to score Monaco's final goal in a 3-1 win over Troyes, and scored his first goal for the club, becoming their youngest ever goalscorer as he broke Thierry Henry's record for the Ligue 1 giants.
The comparisons to Henry will only intensify now Arsenal are keen, but fans will see a pacey French forward who can play out wide or up front - much like Henry could during his playing days.
However, Arsenal aren't the only team looking at Mbappe, as the Daily Mail suggest that Liverpool are also keen, and Manchester United have already enquired about a player they feel could be another Anthony Martial; though Gunners boss Wenger may be hoping that his reputation in French football - and Henry's success at Arsenal - can work in his favour.
