Barcelona's pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen’s Lars Bender has dealt a blow to Arsenal’s hopes of signing the German midfielder summer.

Unlikely to be able to compete with the Spanish club's offer, Arsenal will now reignite their interest in Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin according to the Metro.

Arsene Wenger has been a long time admirer of Schneiderlin, and had hoped to sign him in the previous summer window when his future with Southampton looked unlikely. Despite that, the Frenchman stayed and the Saints have reaped the rewards as they push for European football.

His head could be turned, however, if  a club of Arsenal's size and stature made an approach when the market reopens.
