Arsenal are reportedly looking to rekindle their interest in Real Madrid's German midfielder Sami Khedira.
The Gunners, who had to spend £42.5 million to secure the services of Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil last summer, had also been keen on bringing in Khedira.
However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger cooled his interest after the 27-year-old midfielder suffered a knee injury in October.
Now that the German, who started during Real Madrid Champions League final against Atletico Madrid, has recovered from the injury, Wenger is again reportedly interested in getting his signature, according to the Daily Mirror.
Although Arsenal are being considered as favourites to re-sign Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, as they had added a buy-back clause in the Spaniard's contract when he left for the Nou Camp in 2011, the 27-year-old playmaker will cost the Gunners in excess of £30m.
However, Khedira, who only has a year remaining on his current contract with Real, is reportedly available at a price of around £15m.
Also, earlier, the German defensive midfielder had dropped big hints indicating he maybe joining Ozil and his other German compatriots at Arsenal in the future.
"Arsenal had a strong team anyway, but Mesut makes them the best team in England. I am sure he can be the player that makes things happen for them and win them the championship. Mesut is a genius on the field, there is no other way to describe him," the Metro had quoted Khedira as saying back in October
"Of course, there was some disappointment among the players at Madrid because he is the best in his position in the world. But I understand his decision as a player and also as my friend. He is already playing amazing football for Arsenal and he hasn't even got used to the Premier League yet.
"There is a real German influence [at Arsenal] now, with Per Metersacker, Lukas Podolski, Mesut and also younger players coming through. They are the sort of players Arsenal need if they are to win trophies."
Meanwhile the Gunners are also reportedly targeting Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, according to the Metro.
With Arsenal unable to persuade Lukasz Fabianski, who is set to leave on a free transfer, to continue on at the Emirates next season, Wenger is desperate to sign a new goalkeeper to challenge Wojciech Szczesny.
And the French boss is confident Begovic will prove to be a good signing. According to reports, Arsenal representatives, who are looking to approach Stoke as soon as possible, are confident that they will be able to land the Bosnian shotstopper for £8m.
