Manchester City are apparently observing a move for Gunners Star Jack Wilshere.
Pepe Guardiola is said to be intense to reinforce his midfield options, particularly with Ilkay Gundogan out wounded and Yaya Toure’s long-term future at Man City uncertain
Wenger permitted the 24 year old to join Bournemouth on a campaign –long loan during the summer in search on regular game time.
The injury-plagued midfielder has made 13 appearances for the Cherries, registering a sole assist in the process.
There are just 18 months left to run on his Arsenal contract but Wenger has already confirmed that he will soon be offered a new deal at the Emirates.
“Yes of course [we will offer him a new deal],” he told Standard Sport last month. “At the moment, I leave him to deal with his manager.
“Every week I ask, ‘How did he play?’, I read the reports and when I can see highlights or watch him on television, I will watch him.
“I’m happy that he hasn’t had any injuries since he left us.”
