Arsenal are planning a bid for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi, according to reports.
The French midfielder has been linked with a move away from PSG all summer and it appears Wenger has been alerted by his availability.
Matuidi is one of the best midfielders in France and he is believed to be seeking a new challenge and is open to the idea of changing clubs.
Earlier in the summer, Manchester United were credited with an interest in Matuidi but the Old Trafford club have since cooled their interest in the midfielder and turned their attention to Paul Pogba.
And Gazetta Dello Sport via The Metro are now claiming Arsenal and Juventus have been left to battle each other for Matuidi’s signature.
Wenger has already completed the signing of Granit Xhaka this summer and is well stocked in the midfield area but he could be tempted to make a move for Matuidi as there are not many midfielders in the world that are better than the French man.
Arsene Wenger has already identified signing a striker and centre back as his priority this summer but a move for Matuidi would not be easy to turn down.The French tactician has always insisted he is ready to strengthen his squad and spend big on the right players.
