Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to try again for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender.

The Telegraph says Wenger's focus this summer is central midfield and at least one, and possibly two, additional strikers.

A renewed bid for Bender, the Bayer Leverkusen holding midfielder, can be expected after a £20 million offer was rejected last summer.
