Arsenal are being linked with a £15million swoop for Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has made signing a new striker his top priority this summer although he is still on the look out for a new midfielder and Gustavo has emerged as a target.
Wenger is keen to land a defensive midfielder and the fact that Gustavo can slot into defence makes him an even more attractive proposition for the French tactician.
Gustavo played a key role in Bayern's treble-winning season but, following the arrival of Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona, the European Champions are now willing to let him go.
The 25-year-old has a contract with Bayern until 2015 and fellow German outfit Wolfsburg are also reported to be showing an interest and could offer him the chance to stay in the Bundesliga.
