Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is chasing Schalke winger Lewis Holtby.

The Daily Star Sunday says Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also a fan of Holtby but the player may choose to snub a move to Anfield and join Arsenal – because his dad is a massive Everton fan.

The midfielder, 22 is out of contract at the end of the season and says he dreams of a move to the Premier League.

Holtby has impressed Wenger this season and the Frenchman is ready to make a move for Holtby in January, as will Kop chief Rodgers.
