Arsenal are reportedly planning a siege on fellow Premier League side Southampton with three potential targets lined up, according to the Express.

Arsene Wenger has identified a trio of players who can make the difference at the Emirates of next season, as the Frenchman looks to build on a trophy-winning season for the first time in nine years.

The first target is up-and-coming right back, Calum Chambers. Wenger is looking to replace Sagna who is set to complete his move to Manchester City. Chambers is an England Under-19 international and another graduate of the Southampton academy. Arsenal have a history of buying academy graduates from the Saints. Chambers would become the third member of that academy to move to Arsenal, following moves from Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott who both moved to the Emirates.

Next on the list is fellow right-back, Nathaniel Clyne. Clyne has attracted a lot of attention in the last few weeks with Liverpool keen suitors as well. Clyne would provide stiff competition with Chambers if both join the north London outfit.

Another target for Wenger, is fellow Frenchman Morgan Schneiderlin. The midfielder has been a revelation in the Premier League for Southampton since the Saints got promoted and Wenger is keen to bring a midfield destroyer in this summer.

Southampton are set to lose a number of different personnel this summer, with Lallana, Shaw and Pochettino all expected to leave the club.
