Wenger linked with defender swoop

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been linked with a swoop for transfer listed Chelsea defender Alex.

Alex handed in a transfer request at Stamford Bridge and has now been frozen out at Chelsea, with the Brazilian centre-half expected to leave in next month's transfer window.

Wenger has suggested he has no plans to bolster his options in January but the Frenchman is still being tipped to bring in another defender, following some poor displays at the back.

Summer recruit Per Mertesacker is yet to impress at the Emirates and Wenger has now reportedly turned his attentions to Alex.

Wenger could face a battle to land Alex however, as Italian outfit Juventus and north London rivals Spurs have also been linked with the want-away Chelsea defender.
