Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to join Juventus and Manchester City in the race to sign Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.
Van Persie is out of contract at the end of the next season and has been linked with a number of clubs in recent weeks.
Manchester United have also been linked with the Netherlands international, as have Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Italian giants AC Milan.
Juve and Man City are seen as frontrunners to win the race to sign the 28-year-old should he quit Arsenal this summer, but according to widespread reports on Friday morning, mega-rich PSG are ready to make their move to sign the Dutchman.
Man City are believed to be prepared to offer Van Persie a four-year, £250,000-a-week deal should he snub Arsenal's new £130,000-a-week contract offer and move to the north west - despite the Gunners insisting they will not let any more of their players join Mancini's side.
That kind of money would not be an issue for the Ligue 1 outfit, who are backed by the Qatari Investment Authority and have the funds to compete with big-spending City.
Whether Van Persie would be open to the idea of playing in France, however, remains to be seen.
The Gunners captain is stalling on a new contract at Emirates Stadium, despite a £5million bonus thought to be on the table should he agree to stay.
Reports in the past 24 hours have suggested Man City are preparing a launch a formal bid for the forward worth around £20m.
Earlier this week, manager Roberto Mancini was coy when asked about Van Persie.
"Van Persie is an Arsenal player, I won't say anything," he told Sky Sport 24.
City bosses are believed to be keen on balancing the books this summer and want to offload the likes of Edin Dzeko - a target for Bayern Munich - Emmanuel Adebayor, and Roque Santa Cruz before bringing in any new forwards.
Carlos Tevez, who according to reports last week is back on Real Madrid's radar, could also be sold.
