Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is interested in Benfica midfielder Javi Garcia.

Cadena Ser says Wenger is keen on Javi Garcia as he seeks to add a ball-winner to his midfield in January.

A former centre-half at Real Madrid, Javi Garcia has developed into one of the most coveted young defensive midfielders on the continent.

Only last month, the player's agent was forced to deny rumours of talks with Manchester United about a move to England.
