Metro reports that the club could well be set to launch a double raid on Real Madrid.
Both Alvaro Morata and legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas are on the wishlist for Arsene Wenger this winter and that is music to the ears of Arsenal fans.
As our landlord points out, there is more than one side that has their eye on Morata.
Given the news that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is now open to allowing the player to leave, it seems that we could well be about to witness a tug of war between the two giants in North London.
Tottenham Hotspur are also keen on landing Morata and Manchester City are eyeing Iker Casillas.
The keeper is on the periphery of things at Real Madrid and despite being the number one and skipper for several seasons, his standing at the club has fallen since the tenure of Jose Mourinho and the arrival of Diego Lopez.
As one of our punters quips, it seems that Arsenal are keen on most of the players at Real Madrid, with Mesut Ozil already being a revelation at the club.
Will the double swoop come off? Let us know your thoughts below.
