Arsenal secured qualification for the Champions League knock-out stage with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.

Robin van Persie maintained his sparkling run of form with two second-half goals to ensure the Gunners qualified as Group F winners.

Arsenal captain van Persie notched his 16th and 17th goals of the season as the Gunners became the first of the Premier League quartet to qualify for the next stage of Europe's elite competition.

Arsene Wenger used Wednesday night's match to scout Arsenal targets Mario Gotze and Shinji Kagawa, two of Europe's brightest young prospects who have regularly been linked with a move to north London.

The Arsenal manager is in the market for a creative midfielder following the departures of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas in the summer.

Dortmund's Neven Subotic and Lille midfielder Eden Hazard have also been linked with moves to Arsenal, while Real Madrid's Raul Albiol is another transfer target.

With this in mind, IBTimes Sports takes a look at the Arsenal targets who were in action in Europe this week.
