Emirates Stadium side linked with surprise move to raid AS Roma and Napoli.
Arsenal are ready to sell rarely used attacking pair Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski ahead of a move to bring in AS Roma striker Mattia Destro and Napoli playmaker Marek Hamsik according to the Daily Express.
Whilst Gunners fans may have expected Arsene Wenger to make moves in the January transfer window they are likely to be surprised by reports to bring in options to bring in players to strengthen their options in the final third.
The north London side have seen their defensive options decimated by injuries as well as Wenger’s inability to find a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen following the Belgian’s move to Barcelona.
The lack of a defensive midfielder of real quality is another aspect Wenger would look to address at the earliest opportunity so moves for this Serie A pair make little or no sense.
Slovakian international Hamsik is valued at £20m whilst Stadio Olimpico striker Destro is said to have a £15m price-tag.
