Neither forward has managed to assert themselves on the Gunners first team this season with Wenger having a number of options in attack currently.

Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Yaya Sanogo and Danny Welbeck are all available to the Frenchman and he is keen to focus on improving the defence instead.

Campbell and Podolski have barely featured for the North London side this season as Wenger has preferred the before mentioned names in the forward roles.

The Germany international has started just one match in 2014/15 during the Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton and his former club Cologne and Inter Milan are keen on signing the 29-year-old.

For Campbell his impressive form for surprise package Costa Rica at the 2014 World Cup still hasn’t convinced Wenger and Everton, Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion are among those interested in the 22-year-old.

The manager has been handed a £20m budget for improvements in the New Year and has made his back line a priority with options very limited currently.
