First it was Dani Ceballos and then Martin Ǿdegaard.
And now Arsenal may be ready to return to another familiar source to make another loan signing in form of striker Luka Jović.
The Serbian is very much on the fringes under Carlo Ancelotti, and has played just 60 minutes of football in the league, spread across five substitute appearances.
With the Gunners set to lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the African Cup of Nations, and with both Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in the final year of their contracts, the Gunners are looking to boost their striking options.
With Real looking for around £22 million to any club wanting to purchase Jović, a loan deal with an option to buy is seen as a good way to decide if he is a natural fit for the Premier League or not.
Liverpool are among the other clubs who have been linked to the forward as well.
