It remains to be seen as to whether Arsenal are prepared to meet Real Madrid's £18 million valuation for the midfielder. If the German international is signed by Wenger, then the player would be the second star in consecutive seasons to leave Madrid for the Emirates.


If a move does fail to materialise, it appears that Schneiderlin could make a move to north London. The Southampton midfielder has seen a number of his teammates depart the St Mary's in recent time, with the likes of Luke Shaw and Rickie Lambert leading the exodus.

It remains to be seen as to whether Wenger steps up his interest in the highly rated French international, but he certainly appears to be keen to land a midfielder in this window.


If either of Schneiderlin or Khedia do arrive at the Emirates, then they will have to compete with a number of midfield stars at Arsenal. The likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere are already competing for places in the middle of the park, which means it won't be an easy task for a new recruit to dislodge them.

It looks set to be a busy summer at Arsenal, as the club look to build on their FA Cup success from last term.
