Arsenal will reportedly look to sign Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila after completing a deal for FC Koln striker Lukas Podolski.
Reports in Germany on Thursday had suggested that Cologne chairman Werner Wolf has already told the club's board that they have agreed a deal with Arsenal for Podolski, but Standard Sport reported on Friday that Wenger has been asked to keep quiet for several more weeks before announcing the transfer.
The Germans are said to be keen to avoid angering their supporters any further following last week's 6-1 drubbing against Borussia Dortmund.
According to the Sunday Mirror, Arsenal have agreed a £10million fee with Cologne for Podolski, who will sign a five-year, £80,000-a-week deal with the Gunners.
And now, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will look to land Rennes' £15million-rated midfielder, M'Vila.
Rennes are preparing themselves for a bidding war at the end of the season as Inter Milan, Liverpool, and Real Madrid also show interest.
But Arsenal are widely seen as favourites to sign the 21-year-old.
Rennes coach Frederic Antonetti last month admitted M'Vila "won't be a Stade Rennais player next season," and general manager Pierre Dreossi has also confirmed that the Ligue 1 club will abide by an agreement from last summer in which they would allow him to leave at the end of the current campaign if he penned a long-term contract.
The contract was signed to help boost M'Vila's asking price.
"Last summer, the deal was that he remained for one more season and then we would not block a move if a good offer arrived," Dreossi recently told L'Equipe.
"We have contacts, but nothing has been agreed as yet."
