Arsenal are preparing a January assault on FC Basel stopper Fabian Schar, according to Daily Express.
The Gunners have enjoyed a bright start to the league campaign having climbed to the top of the Premier League standings, and they are 6/1 to remain there come end of the season.
Nevertheless, Arsene Wenger is looking to do some business in the winter transfer window, with the Frenchman being linked with a move for Swiss defender Fabian Schar.
The Gunners could face a stiff competition for the youngster from Juventus, but a promising start to the new season is likely to increase their chances of landing the talented defender.
Fabian Schar, 21, is already considered an important player for both club and country and has been in scintillating form this term.
While scoring 4 goals in 12 appearances for FC Basel, the centre-back has netted no less than three times in 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Iceland and Norway.
