Arsene Wenger is apparently keen on further bolstering his defensive options this summer, with Borussia Dortmund star Neven Subotic top of the list, according to ESPN.

Questions have been raised over the suitability of Per Mertesacker at Arsenal, and despite a solid game against Manchester United this past Monday speculation continues to grow.
The giant German could see himself down the pecking order this summer, with Subotic a potential replacement.
Gabriel Paulista was signed from Villarreal in January, and looks to be a fantastic acquisition. We could still arguably use some defensive cover however, as with the Brazilian suffering an injury during his second start we are already looking a little light again.

Subotic, 26, may be the answer, and with just a year left on his current contract the Serbian international could be looking for an exit from the struggling Bundesliga side.
We will apparently face heavy competition from a host of top European clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, and a trio of Serie A giants.
I’m not so sure he is enough of an improvement to warrant a purchase, especially when you take into consideration his injury problems. If we can get him on a cut price deal however, then he could prove worth it.
