Arsenal are looking to strengthen their injury ridden squad with more options in January, and their attention is said to be on Bayer Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi.
The German international has been on the Gunners wish list for a long time and is currently on a contract that runs till 2020 with Bayer Leverkusen, but a move to the Emirates will surely be too tempting for him.
With Arsenal running short of wingers and Joel Campbell not impressing when given the chance, Arsenal are now understandably after more options on the flank.
But the Gunners face stiff competition from Manchester United with the club reportedly interested in Bellarabi and Van Gaal stating the need for more pace on their flanks in January.
The link created between Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen after the sale of Javier Hernandez to the German club has made Arsenal’s task more uphill.
But Wenger can surely pull off the deal, after notably stealing Alexis Sanchez from the cusps of Juventus and Liverpool.
