Arsenal is after Carlos Tevez

According to the British media, Arsenal are ready to table a £17 million bid for Corinthians star Carlos Tevez.

Arsenal hope to invoke a get-out clause in midfielder Tevez's deal with his Brazilian team Corinthians. They originally claimed his contract said he could quit for $ 30m - but Tevez's agent revealed it actually says 30 million dollars.

We must remember that Tevez is lined up to play for Argentina in a friendly against Brazil at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

According to the newspaper, the ideal plan is to unveil Tevez as a Gunners player before kick-off.

We must mention that Manchester United had been leading the race for Tevez, who made a huge impact at Germany 2006.

However, they could only move if they failed to lure Owen Hargreaves from Bayern Munich.

In fact, United cannot afford both and boss Alex Ferguson has kept England midfielder Hargreaves top of his summer shopping list.
