Arsenal are reportedly considering a bid for Wigan winger Victor Moses as doubts about Theo Walcott's future at the club continue.
Walcott has twelve months left on his contract at Emirates Stadium and talks over a new deal are believed to have stalled.
Arsenal fear that following Robin van Persie's recent announcement that he does not plan to sign a new contract, the 23-year-old may follow his captain's lead and look to secure a move away this summer.
Walcott has been linked with a number of clubs in recent weeks and prior to Van Persie's bombshell, the Sunday Mirror reported that both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain were ready to make their move to sign the forward.
And according to the Daily Star Sunday, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a bid for Moses should Walcott indicate his future lies away from north London.
It had recently been reported that some Arsenal officials believe the club should consider cashing in on the England international.
Chelsea last month failed with a £4million bid for Moses, who also has just twelve months left on his contract at the DW Stadium.
Liverpool are also keen on signing the 21-year-old, who Wigan value at around £10m.
Wigan owner Dave Whelan on Thursday insisted he was in no rush to sell the Nigeria international, despite him entering the final year of his contract.
Speaking to ESPN, he said: "We don't need to sell him with 12 months to go on his contract because he is under 24, so wouldn't be going on a free transfer.
"Ideally, we would like him to sign a new contract, or a club like Chelsea would have to be realistic.
"At the moment, they are taking the mickey with the bid they've made."
