Arsenal are planning a £55million Bundesliga swoop for Germany internationals Lukas Podolski and Mario Gotze.
Arsene Wenger is experiencing his worst season in charge of the Gunners and a report in German newspaper Bild suggests he is ready to make a couple of high-profile additions to his squad this summer.
The Emirates Stadium club have just crashed out of the FA Cup and, after a 4-0 thrashing by AC Milan, look as though a Champions League exit will follow for them and this could spark Wenger into a summer spree.
Podolski has been linked with a move to Arsenal a number of times and has hinted his openness for a move to north London away from current side Cologne.
If either were to join the Gunners, he would line up next to compatriot and international team-mate Per Merteseacker.
