PSV Eindhoven midfielder Kevin Strootman is a target for Arsenal. The Telegraph says with Abou Diaby's season again hampered by injuries, Arsenal could also do with added solidity in midfield and Strootman, who plays for PSV Eindhoven, is regarded as one of the best young holding players in Europe.

Interestingly, Gunners chief scout Steve Rowley is expected in Amsterdam for PSV's clash at Ajax this weekend.
