The Gunners want to sign Nigeria youngster Onyekuru from Belgian side Eupen.
And the 20-year-old has outlined his expectations from any move away from his current club.
"The first and most important thing for a player is to get playing time," he told ESPN.
"I'm still young and I still have a long career to pursue but now I need to play.
"My agents are in talks with top clubs in the Premier League, Bundesliga, French league and others. If they accept our terms, then I'll make a decision.
"It's not just about going to a big club and sitting on the bench. It's not good for me, or being loaned to a club where I won't play or where I will struggle to play.
"The money can come later but for now, I just want to play to improve, not just to play for a big club."

And he told that teenager Nelson has earned his place.
“We have some young players who will join the squad next season,” Wenger said. “Like Reiss Nelson, like Ainsley Maitland-Niles already. So they are two players.
“So we have quality players who might have a chance next season and hopefully we will be able to do that again because that’s part of the DNA of the club as well.
“The first quality we have that will be needed is to keep the [first-team] players together. The team has learned a lot, but to transfer that into the new season the first ingredient and the first request is that they stay together, that they fight together.
“So that’s basically my answer: let’s keep them all together.”
