Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to make a move for Borussia Dortmund full-back Lukasz Piszczek, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Gunners chief is believed to be searching for a replacement for current first choice right-sided defender Bacary Sagna, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

There have been rumours that the Frenchman's improved form may earn him a new deal at the Emirates Stadium, but the player himself has been attracting much attention from clubs in his homeland.

Wenger is believed to have earmarked Piszczek as a potential replacement for Sagna, and is preparing a 2014 move for his signature.

The Polish international has been a key member of Dortmund's squad for some time, and was impressive during EURO 2012.

At 28, he could be ready to seek a new challenge, but Dortmund are believed to be far from keen to sell due to his contract being set to run until 2017.

Wenger is also keen on Piszczek's team-mate Ilkay Gundogan.

The German international midfielder has developed into one of the most promising deep-lying playmakers in Europe, alerting the Arsenal chief.

Wenger is hopeful that he can thrash out a deal to bring the 22-year-old to North London to join international colleague Mesut Ozil.
