Arsenal are planning a bid for Eintracht Frankfurt right-back Sebastian Jung in January, according to Goal.com.
The Gunners have sent a delegation to Germany to complete a deal for Julian Draxler and Jung as they prepare for life without Bacary Sagna, who is yet to sign a new contract with the Gunners.
The defender has made 21 starts this season, scoring one goal and assisting five and is regarded to be among the brightest prospect in German football.
The north London club currently have Carl Jenkinson to cover for Sagna and the Gunners are looking to make a swoop in January, which will allow Jung to familiarise himself to the right-back position in Sagna's presence.
The defender is expected to be available for a fee in the range of £7m and will be major coup for the Gunners from an attacking point of view, with the player known for his marauding runs down the right.
Meanwhile, Sagna is believed to have had contact from a number of clubs by the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco and Inter Milan.
Meanwhile, on the other end of the field, the Gunners are strongly pursuing a move for Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler with the clubs reportedly haggling over a fee.
The Bundesliga club reportedly want Arsenal to match Draxler's release clause in £37.2m but the Gunners are stalling on a deal with Arsene Wenger reportedly not willing to pay anything more than £30m.
Schalke's sporting director Horst Heldt revealed that there has been no contact from Arsenal or any other club regarding Draxler and that the player is set to be at the club till the end of the season.
"I can't exclude anything, I don't know what other clubs are planning. I only know what happens in our club - and nothing happens at the moment, so we don't bother with this. We are very calm with this thing," Heldt said in an interview before the Hamburg game.
