Media reports suggest that Arsenal are chasing Hassan Yebda.

Arsene Wenger was linked to the Benfica midfielder last summer, and the Gunners boss is supposedly set to renew his interest in the Algerian international.

Italian website Calcio Mercato Web understands that Yebda caught Wenger's eye while on loan at Portsmouth last season, playing for the south coast side 18 times as they slipped out of the Premier League.

The French-born 26-year-old represented Algeria at the World Cup this summer and is the latest in a long line of midfielders to be linked with a move to the Emirates before the end of the transfer window.

Another name to be constantly mentioned regarding a move to north London is Marseille ace Hatem Ben Arfa, and reports suggest that Arsenal are lining up a £12 million bid for the Frenchman.

French newspaper L'Equipe believe that the playmaker has a choice between two or three clubs, but is waiting for a deal to be struck up between his employers and a potential suitor.

Wenger is thought to be keen to add another player to his midfield ranks after injuries to Samir Nasri and Emmanuel Frimpong.
