The Gunners are in need of new signings in midfield after losing a number of key players to injury throughout the season, and it may be that Arsene Wenger sees Sneijder as an ideal candidate to come in and play that deep-lying role and provide competition for Mikel Arteta in that position.

The experienced Netherlands international has often been linked with a move to the Premier League, with United known to be long-time admirers of his, while Chelsea have also emerged as potential suitors of his under he enjoyed some of the finest form of his career under Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

Still, Arsenal’s need for strengthening in midfield may now see them join the running for his signature, as he looks likely to leave Galatasray this January over a pay dispute.

The 30-year-old has not been paid for the last three months and is thought to be owed around £1m by the Turkish giants, and he is prepared to take his case to FIFA as he looks to appeal for an exit from the club.

Arsenal are also thought to be chasing Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira this January, while it is also claimed that they could be ready to offload the inconsistent Jack Wilshere for around £15m.
