Arsenal are ready to reignite their interest in Switzerland star Fabian Schar as they bid to solve their defensive crisis.
Their problems at the back worsened at the weekend when Gabriel Paulista was ruled out for six weeks with Per Mertesacker already out until the New Year.
And now, according to Bild, they could turn their attention to an old target in Schar, who may be allowed to leave Hoffenheim for just £8m this summer.
The 24-year-old only arrived from Basel this time last year, when the Gunners were interested, but he started just 20 Bundesliga games during his maiden season.
That could leave to an exit, although Arsenal will also face competition from Valencia for his signature.
