Arsenal are eyeing Sevilla defender Federico Fazio.
The young Argentine has been a revelation for Sevilla over the last 18 months and was watched by Gunners scouts in UEFA Cup action against Standard Liege last week. (

Wenger is set for a busy January, that is if you believe every transfer rumour you read. However, this low-key target is the kind of deal you could imagine the wily Frenchman completing. Arguably, Arsenal may need another centre back, and this youngster is reportedly in fine form. His recent performances for club have not gone unnoticed, as he was rewarded with his first senior cap for Argentina recently, and would apparently be available for as little as £5m.

The 21-year-old has already achieved a great deal with an Olympic gold medal and an Under-21 World Cup win under his belt. He could well be a very useful addition to the hugely talented young squad at the Emirates. Do Gunners fans feel the side is a little short on strength in depth in central defence?
