Southampton midfielder Schneiderlin has been a long term target of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, he has been eyeing him since the summer.
The French midfielder has also desired for a move to the Emirates. Meanwhile, another London side Tottenham Hotspur have always been in the race for him.
The £15million star is now likely to be joining the Gunners at the end of the season but for now the French boss will have to face the same midfield issues which he has been facing since the start of the season.
Express reported that Arsenal are ready to secure his move but the Saints are desperate to keep him despite of knowing his desire of Champions League football.
