Arsenal's pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin have suddenly stalled.

The Daily Mail says talks to bring the Real Madrid midfielder to Arsenal on loan have hit a sticking point.

Arsene Wenger wants to replace Alex Song by signing Sahin, 23, on a one-year loan but negotiations have become locked on the terms of an option to buy him permanently next year.

Liverpool are also interested but the lure of Champions League football was still expected to tip the balance in Arsenal’s favour.
