According to many Spanish sources Arsenal are now hot favourites to land Real Madrid’s Nuri Sahin on a season-long loan.
The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder joined Real Madrid in 2011 on a six-year-contract but failed to impress in his first season and manager Jose Mourinho cannot grant him regular opportunities.
The Portuguese wants the 23-year-old to play football elsewhere to regain his confidence but is unwilling to sell him permanently.
Arsene Wenger is very much interested in adding him and has already spoken with the player over a possible move.
Liverpool are also an interested party and according to some reports they are ready to hijack the midfielder as the Reds looking to exploit the good relationship between both the managers.
But it is understood that Nuri Sahin has set his heart on Arsenal. The Gunners wanted to make the move permanent for him at the end of the season but Madrid boss is not willing to entertain that offer.
Meanwhile Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi is set to join Wigan on a season long loan, possibly clearing the path of Victor Moses, who is poised to join Chelsea.
