Arsenal have reportedly approached Everton as regards to the availability of midfield duo Mikel Arteta and Marouane Fellaini.
According to the Daily Mirror, the north London club have 'made an enquiry' over the Toffees pair as Arsene Wenger attempts to bolster his ranks before the transfer deadline.
After the respective departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, Arsenal are in desperate need of midfield reinforcements, with Wenger keen on a number of potential acquisitions.
Arteta has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past, while Fellaini is alleged to have been on the radar of the Gunners before his switch to Goodison Park three years ago.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are also said to be pursuing French pair Yann M'Vila and Marvin Martin as Wenger looks to add both a creative influence and combative edge to his midfield.
The Arsenal boss has already made his interest known in Chelsea playmaker Yossi Benayoun, who has also been linked with a return to Liverpool.
Chelsea are understood to have attempted to use Benayoun as a makeweight in a bid for Liverpool midfielder Raul Meireles, but the proposal was rejected by the Anfield club.
Benayoun only left Liverpool for Chelsea last summer, but his stay at Stamford Bridge has been plagued by injuries.
The Israel international spent three years at Anfield, having joined Liverpool from West Ham in 2007.
