Arsenal are reported to be keeping tabs on Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Schurrle and Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby.
Germany has been a happy hunting ground for Arsene Wenger in the past after he snapped up Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker, while youngsters Serge Gnabry and Thomas Eisfeld are also on board.
Reports now claim that Wenger is lining up further swoops on the Bundesliga when the transfer window re-opens, although he would have to pay big money to land 21-year-old Schurrle.
Chelsea were heavily linked with the German international in the summer and were quoted a price of 20million euros which could put him out of Wenger's price range unless Theo Walcott is sold.
Holtby, meanwhile, is out of contract at the end of the season and would be available for a cut-price fee unless he pens a new deal. The 22-year-old impressed Wenger during Schalke's 2-0 win at the Emirates in the Champions League earlier this month and is now on the Frenchman's list of targets.
