Serie A side Inter Milan will launch a double-bid for Arsenal duo Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell, once the January transfer window opens.
The Metro reports the Italian outfit are keen on adding attacking options to their side, and the two fringe players from North London could be the perfect fit for their side.
Lack of game-time
According to reports in Italy, Inter will continue to monitor the duo from now until the New Year, and will then decide on which one they'd prefer as they financially cannot afford to sign both.
It's believed the Italian side will track the game-times of both players and will decide which one to go for and which one they find more viable financially.
Podolski has already revealed in a recent interview that he may leave the Emirates Stadium in January if his game-time doesn't improve, whilst Campbell was keen on securing a move away in the Summer, albeit on loan.
When questioned about both players' future, Arsene Wenger admitted that he wanted to keep both of them and stated that they would both play a role in the squad this season, but so far, both have been restricted to brief appearances.
Wenger admitted after the World Cup that Campbell would stay in England, rather than go out on loan again, like he did last season with Greek side Olympiacos, despite Benfica desperately trying to sign him on transfer deadline day.
The Portuguese outfit launched a last minute bid to try and sign the forward on a season-long loan, but after Olivier Giroud's serious foot injury, Wenger wanted to keep Campbell at the club.
As for Podolski, Wenger has recently admitted that the German international still has a role at the club, despite mainly being used as a substitute due to new signings and youngsters breaking into the first-team.
It's believed that Inter are swaying more towards Campbell, as they like the fact he's still young and also versatile as to where he plays on the pitch.
According to the Italian source, Campbell's agent will fly to Italy in the next fortnight in order to hold brief talks about a possible future transfer.
As for Podolski, Inter know that they will face serious competition for the 29-year-old's signature, including from rivals, Juventus.
