The 19-year-old is the top scorer in Belgium this season with an amazing 24 goals and he also added nine assists.
While it may not be the marquee signing that fans will want, he could be a very useful addition to the squad.
His release clause is £6.8m, according to Solhekol. It is basically no risk to add a player that clearly has an eye for goal.
One other thing that may endear him to Arsenal fans – he is a massive Arsenal fan.
Everton, Southampton, West Brom and Middlesbrough are also said to be interested in the starlet but his dream is to play for Arsenal.
Here is an example of his talent.
