Malaga right-back Jesus Gamez has been linked with a summer move to Arsenal with striker Nicklas Bendtner possibly going the other way.
Spanish daily Marca is reporting that Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger has been keeping tabs on the Andalucian outfit's skipper as he eyes a long-term replacement for French stopper Bacary Sagna at the Emirates Stadium.
And, having signed Santi Cazorla from Malaga 12 months ago, Wenger is hoping to use Danish hitman, Bendtner and 1.7 million euros to sweeten them into letting Gamez make the move to north London.
It is thought the La Liga side value Gamez higher than Arsenal but they could agree a deal if the Gunners agree to pay half of Bendtner's wages while he is in Spain before his contract expires at the end of next June.
