Arsenal are reportedly still chasing Everton starlet Jack Rodwell.
The Guardian reported last summer that Rodwell was high on the wish list of the north Londoners and now, according to Metro, the Gunners could launch a move for the midfielder at the end of the season.
Arsenal are also expected to be joined by Manchester United in the race for the 20-year-old, who continues to impress with some imperious displays at the heart of the Everton midfield.
According to Football-Talk, Arsenal have reportedly identified the youngster as a potential replacement for Cesc Fabregas, should the Gunners skipper leave the club at the end of the season.
Barcelona are expected to reignite their interest in the Spaniard during the transfer window, while Arsenal will reportedly have to also fight off interest from Inter Milan and Chelsea..
As far as acquisitions are concerned, Arsenal are also said be keeping tabs on Blackburn duo Steven N'Zonzi and Phil Jones, as well as Bolton stopper Gary Cahill.
