Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing star Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri.
City are also believed to be close to agreeing a fee with the Gunners for left-back Gael Clichy, while La Liga champions Barcelona have been continually linked with a swoop for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.
Nasri has been the subject of interest from a number of clubs over the past few weeks, including City’s closest rivals Manchester United.
The Frenchman signed for Arsenal from Marseille in 2008 and has been one of Wenger’s most impressive players over the last few seasons.
He’s made 126 appearances for the Londoners, scoring 27 goals.
City could well hit Arsenal with a double blow as they are reportedly close to signing Clichy for a deal believed to be worth about seven million pounds.
Clichy joined Arsenal in 2003 and has made 187 English Premier League appearances, becoming the first choice left-back after Ashley Cole departed for Chelsea.
With Barcelona chasing Fabregas, Wenger may have to rebuild his squad in the remainder of the off-season.
