Arsenal are weighing up joining the battle for Cardiff City defender Steven Caulker.

The Daily Mail says Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has already expressed an interest in Caulker's Cardiff team-mate goalkeeper David Marshall and wants cover for centre-backs Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.

Caulker is a target for Swansea while former club Tottenham, Southampton and Liverpool have also been sounded out.
