ARSENAL have joined Manchester United in the hunt for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Co recently registered an interest in the Portuguese striker.
United want ex-Porto and AC Milan star Silva, 25, should they fail to sign Erling Haaland or convince Edinson Cavani to extend his contract this summer.
Silva has been in red-hot form this season, scoring 20 goals in just 23 games.
However, Frankfurt are keen to make Luka Jovic's return from Real Madrid on loan permanent this summer.
And they are believed to be actively pushing Silva for around £30m in order to make that dream a reality.
United appeared to have a clear run at Silva, but Arsenal have now revealed they are interested, according to Calciomercato.
The report in Italy claims Gunners chief Mikel Arteta views Silva as a direct replacement for Lacazette.
The French striker, 29, as struggled for consistency at the Emirates this season, despite scoring nine goals in 22 games.
Lacazette has managed just two goals since netting a double in the 4-0 win at West Brom on January 2.

Silva is under contract until the end of the 2022-23 season, so Frankfurt are unlikely to sell him cheaply.
And with 19 goals in the Bundesliga this season – second only to Robert Lewandowski – the Portuguese star's stock has only continued to rise in recent months.
The 25-year-old was linked with a move to the Premier League in the past after leaving Porto to join AC Milan in 2017 for £32m.
Since then, loan switches to Sevilla and then Frankfurt saw him sign for the latter in September, but England remains a luring attraction.
