Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is understood to be a big fan of the 27-year-old striker and is looking to bolster is attacking options.

Doyle has scored 15 goals in 52 games for Ireland and has been at former national coach Mick McCarthy's Wolves since moving from Reading for a club record £6.5 million in 2009.

The forward's modest goalscoring record has led to many questioning Arsenal's apparent pursuit of him.

Doyle, who has scored 14 goals in 60 appearances for Wolves, was part of the squad which survived relegation from the Premier League on the final day of the season.
