Babos's agent Sandor Varga is known to have been in London over the last week and during this time he held talks with the Gunners vice-chairman David Dein.
"We talked about various things, one of the subjects was Gabor Babos," Varga revealed.
"Because he will not get a work permit, Arsenal will not have direct interest at the moment.
"But they will still be following him - they will follow his career very closely."
26-year-old Babos is one of the most highly rated keepers in Holland and has attracted wide-spread attention, however he is currently only number two for Hungary as Hertha Berlin's Gabor Kiraly is very much their first choice - as he has been since his debut in 1998.
This lack of regular international football would prevent any move to England, although a few more years in Holland would result in EU citizenship, which may then give him the chance of a transfer to England.
Babos is also said to have cbeen watched by Arsenal's London rivals Chelsea, but both are likely to have to take a back seat to Ajax - who are believed to be very keen on sealing a deal in the near future.
