All the latest news and gossip from the past 24 hours at The Emirates.
J-Rod has been in superb form for The Saints this season - and looked set to go to the World Cup with England this summer.
However, he suffered serious knee damage v Manchester City last weekend and is now set to be ruled out of action for six months.
Liverpool and Spurs are also said to be keen - depending on his recovery.
The Gunners pursuit of Champions League football took a heavy dent recently when Everton thrashed them 3-0 at Goodison Park - to move within one point of them in the race for fourth spot with a game in hand.
And Seaman believes the team need silverware - ahead of their FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic this weekend:
"I would take winning the FA Cup over finishing top four. Arsenal have been in the Champions League since it began. That has - apparently - become nothing. It's a great achievement, but we want to win something and the FA Cup would be great.”
It is reported that a section of the Arsenal team do not believe that Arsene Wenger is preparing his team for games correctly.
They believe he is not working enough on then opposition - in the way Jose Mourinho at Chelsea does - and that leaves them open to exposure by the likes of Romelu Lukaku for example at the weekend.
Wenger concentrates on Arsenal’s strengths rather than the opponents - but senior players are worried that is costing them against the better teams.
