Arsenal have switched their midfield targets for January, turning away from their long held interest in Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The injury to Jack Wilshere means that the club need slightly different players.
Arsenal have to also look at that in the long term, given Wilshere’s constant nagging issues with his ankles.
Wenger has cast his eyes on Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak again after initially believing a deal for Khedira was on the cusp of collapse.
Sevilla would look to raise £20 million from selling the player however, and Inter Milan are also chasing his signature.
The Spanish side are also not necessarily willing to sell him though, and the Gunners are clearly not 100 per cent sure about Krychowiak, given their hot and cold attitude towards him.
Arsenal managed a 2-0 win against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in mid-week, with Alexis Sanchez scoring yet another goal.
