Wolfsburg are reportedly preparing to reignite their interest in Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky when the transfer window opens in January.

The Bundesliga outfit have been linked with Rosicky for a number of months as he continues to feature on the peripheries at the Emirates Stadium.

According to Bild, Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath sees the 31-year-old as an ideal signing and could approach Arsenal regarding a deal in the New Year.

Rosicky signed for the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in 2006 for a fee reported to be in the region of £7 million, but has seen his stay in north London often blighted by injury.

He has, however, chalked up 139 appearances for Arsenal but is no longer a guaranteed first-team regular with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere rising to prominence.

Mike Arteta was also added to Arsene Wenger's midfield ranks during the summer, while Alex Song and fit-again Abou Diaby also provide competition for Rosicky.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are reported to be monitoring FC Koln striker Lukas Podolski with a view to a possible January bid for his services.
