Boca Juniors midfielder Sebastian Battaglia is interesting Arsenal.

The News of the World says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is to step up his bid to sign Battaglia.

The £4million-rated Argentine midfield ace, 28, voted Boca's best player in a poll, is a ball winner and just the man to perk up the Gunners midfield.

His agent confirmed interest from a London club, plus two from Italy.
