Arsenal will follow up the reported interest they showed in Real Madrid playmaker Kaka during the summer when the transfer window reopens, it has been claimed.
According to talkSPORT, the north London club could make a firm approach in January, although are likely to be contested by Paris Saint-Germain in the pursuit of the 29-year-old.
It was initially suggested that Arsenal had been keen to bring Kaka to the Emirates Stadium prior to the transfer deadline as Arsene Wenger scoured the market for midfield reinforcements.
However, it is not thought a formal offer was ever made by Arsenal, who were said to be interested in signing the Brazilian on a season-long loan.
Kaka has not enjoyed the best of times at the Santiago Bernabeu since his £56 million move from AC Milan in 2009, mainly down to persistent knee troubles.
Extended spells on the sidelines have also seen Kaka slide down Jose Mourinho's pecking order and, it has been reported, the former would be able to leave Madrid if a suitable offer was received.
Should PSG confirm their interest in the former Sao Paulo star, Arsenal are unlikely to be able to compete with the financial clout of the nouveau-riche French outfit.
