The Frenchman is targeting Krychowiak.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had identified Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak as the ideal candidate to solve his problems in the middle, according to CaughtOffside.
The Poland international has been tracked by the Gunners for some time, with the Premier League club watching the 24-year-old when he was with previous side Reims.
Krychowiak then made the £4m switch to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium over the summer and has played a big part in their strong start to the season.
Sevilla are currently joint top of La Liga with FC Barcelona and the midfield ace has been ever present in the starting XI during that time.
Wenger has problems in holding midfield currently with captain Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini both considered to be some way short of the level required for the North Londoners.
That is what has drawn the Frenchman to Krychowiak, although his £24m release clause could prove to be something of a stumbling block for the English giants.
