Arsenal are preparing to revive their interest in Granit Xhaka - less than six months after he joined Borussia Monchengladbach.
Xhaka, 20, came to prominence at former club Basel, with his displays for the Swiss club attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona.
However, he eventually opted to join Monchengladbach in a deal worth around £7million in May, and he has continued his progress at the Bundesliga club.
And according to Swiss newspaper Blick, Arsene Wenger's side are once again keen on the playmaker and could test Monchengladbach's resolve with a January bid.
However, it could take a sizeable offer to prise Xhaka away - he's contracted until 2017 and the German team would be looking for more than the £7m they paid for him earlier this year.
