Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made enquiries after PSG midfielder Javier Pastore yesterday.

While a deal for Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil was being wrapped up in Munich, Wenger sounded out PSG about a price for Pastore.

It's understood Wenger wanted Ozil AND Pastore signed yesterday, but PSG refused to do business over the Argentine.

Even after Ozil's deal was confirmed, Wenger was pushing his contacts at PSG to open talks over Pastore. But there was not enough time to finalise terms over a fee for the midfielder.
