Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez is being linked with Arsenal.

Marquez is among several Barca players, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bojan Krkic, to be mentioned in a swap for Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas.

Mexico international Marquez, 31, would fit Arsene Wenger's desire to add experience to a central defence which is likely to lose William Gallas this summer.
