Arsenal target Seydou Doumbia is still hoping for English clubs to follow up their interest in him, according to the Daily Mail website.
The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international has scored 20 goals in 24 games for CSKA Moscow including two against Manchester City in their Champions League tie in November.
Arsenal have watched him and asked for reports as they look to add some more firepower to their squad this summer.
Atletico Madrid also like him and have asked to be kept informed of any change in his situation but Doumbia’s preference would be England.
However, his asking price of £18million is causing a real problem for chasing clubs.
