ARSENAL are reportedly set to enter a transfer tussle to sign Schalke star Matthew Hoppe.
The 20-year-old hotshot is currently starring for USA at the Gold Cup.
He has already scored against Jamaica and is now preparing for the final against Mexico tomorrow night.
However, American reporter Grant Wahl has claimed he is expecting Hoppe to be on the move from Germany after the tournament.
And he says that Schalke have already received contact from the Premier League.
Both Arsenal and Everton are believed to have enquired about the hotshot.
Hoppe is under contract with the German club until 2023.
He burst onto the scene with a hat-trick against Hoffenheim in January.
That was followed by strikes against Eintracht Frankfurt and Cologne in his next two outings.
But he was only able to add one more goal to his tally for the rest of the season.

And despite his best efforts, it was not enough to stop Schalke from dropping out of the Bundesliga.
Now he seems certain to depart following relegation and may soon be gracing England’s top-flight.
Hoppe currently has one goal in four caps for his country but will be desperate to grab another one in Sunday’s showdown.
