Wenger could sign former Chelsea star as stop-gap until the summer.
Arsenal have emerged as surprise contenders to sign QPR reject Jose Bosingwa on loan in January – if Bacary Sagna leaves the Emirates.
Bosingwa’s future at struggling QPR is in the balance after boss Harry Redknapp refused to say whether or not the Portuguese international would play for the West Londoners again.
The Gunners are one of a number of clubs willing to take the 30-year-old on loan for the rest of the reason, provided PSG make their interest in contract rebel Bacary Sagna concrete.
Bosingwa was fined two weeks’ wages – roughly £130,000 – by Redknapp after refusing to sit on the bench for the Premier League clash with Fulham earlier this month and was dropped from the squad for last weekend’s match with Newcastle.
Redknapp has admitted the incident is still playing on his mind.
“It disturbed me when a player doesn’t want to sit on the bench when you are bang in trouble,” said the 65-year-old.
“We are all in trouble. The owner and the fans see their team losing every week and suddenly you get someone who doesn’t want to sit on the bench.
“He (Bosingwa) said: ‘I don’t want to sit on the bench.’ He thinks he is too good to sit on the bench. That is what disturbs me in this game.
“I have seen one or two incidents that have disturbed me.”
Redknapp, who replaced Mark Hughes at the helm in late November after the Welshman was sacked, could not confirm whether Bosingwa – who won the Champions League last season with Chelsea – would ever play for the club again.
“I will have to look at it in the future. Let’s see how we go.”
Arsenal, meanwhile, will be in need of defensive reinforcements if Frenchman Sagna departs.
The 29-year-old is wanted by Ligue 1 giants PSG and, with his current deal set to expire in the summer, boss Arsene Wenger will cash if the Parisiens bid more than £7.5m next month.
Despite his hefty wages and attitude problems at QPR, Wenger believes Bosingwa could be a viable stop-gap until the next summer and will attempt to persuade the former Porto man to make the Emirates his third London home in less than six months.
