Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side have had an incredible start to the season and find themselves top of the league and top of their Champions League group.
Wenger isn’t ready to take his foot off the pedal after signing £42m Mesut Ozil on Deadline Day and has today been linked to Jackson Martinez and Xherdan Shaqiri.
The 27 year old Colombian, Martinez, has netted 5 times already this season and has become a star player at the Portuguese Champions.
O Jogo claim Martinez would provide competition for in-form striker Olivier Giroud but Arsenal may have to battle with the likes of Chelsea and Spurs to sign their man.
German site Infoticker have today reported that Arsenal are preparing a €15m bid for Bayern Munich star Xherdan Shaqiri.
The 21 year old winger has only made two starts this season in a star studded Bayern squad and could be tempted by a move to the high flying Gunners.
