Former Arsenal and AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini is in talks over a return to the Emirates, reports the BBC.
The 29-year-old French international's stay at AC Milan ended this summer as he was released from the Italian giants.
Flamini joined Arsenal from Marseille back in 2004 and became a key part of the team that made it to the Champions League final back in 2006 where Arsenal lost 2-1 to current Spanish champions Barcelona.
The Frenchman has been capped just three times for his country and made102 league appearances during his first spell in London.
Arsenal are also working on deals to sign Real Madrid attacking duo Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria.
The Gunners are prepared to pay £40m for 25-year-old France striker Benzema after missing out on Gonzalo Higuain, who joined Napoli, and Liverpool's Luis Suarez who Wenger has admitted defeat in his attempts to sign the South American forward.
Yaya Sanogo is the only new signing Arsenal have made this summer and Wenger admits that his side is short of players and states he will be dipping into the transfer market over the next 10 days to add depth to his squad.
Wenger told BBC Sport: "The transfer market really starts now, a lot of activity will happen between now and 2 September.''
The next 10 days look to be exciting times for Arsenal fans but can Wenger secure the signings that he wants before the deadline closes on the 2nd of September.
