Wenger is after another French player once again. French newspaper L'Equipe had reported that Arsenal are interested in Florian Thauvin and have forwarded a £3.5 million bid for the youngster.

The 19 year old who would soon turn 20 currently plays for Ligue 2 side, Bastia. He has impressed a lot of clubs in Europe with his classy performance and apart from Arsenal, Newcastle United also want him but aren't willing to pay as high as what Arsenal are tabled.

The French wizkid's current club are believed to be interested in Arsenal defender, Squillaci. Knowing that Squillaci is surplus to requirements at the Emirates, Wenger might consider a swap deal.

Thauvin's contract at his club expires in 2014 but Bastia won't hesitate to sell him out for that amount. If signed, he would be sent back on loan till the end of the season.

The midfielder has had appearances for France at the U-18, U-19 and U-20 levels.
