Arsenal are being linked with a shock move for Barcelona defender Dani Alves.

The Daily Express cite reports in Spain when claiming that Gunners chief Arsene Wenger could make a surprise swoop for the Brazilian full-back.

Alves has been a regular for the La Liga leaders this season, but has struggled to find his top form, with the paper claiming his future is the subject of much speculation in Catalonia.

But, Arsenal aren’t the only team keen on the 29-year-old, with Italian giants AC Milan and Russian big-spenders Anzhi Makhachkala also keeping tabs on the player, according to the report.

The Gunners will hope previous dealings with Barca work in their favour, with Cesc Fabregas and Alex Song both leaving the Emirates Stadium for the Nou Camp last summer.

And, with money to spend – Wenger has reportedly been handed a £70million summer transfer war chest – Arsenal could certainly afford the former Sevilla star if they wish to pursue his signature at the end of the season.
