Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis is in Arsenal talks for two loan signings.

Davis wants a midfielder and striker when the loan market reopens.

Davis isn't naming his targets, but hopes to do the deals after talks with Arsenal's assistant boss Steve Bould, his former club-mate at Stoke City.

He told The Sentinel: "I know Steve from when I was at Stoke as a 16-year-old. I made contact with him on deadline day and tried to do something then, but couldn't quite pull it off.

"However, negotiations are ongoing. Arsenal's players are grounded very much like ours in terms of the way they play. They would fit in nicely with what we do."
