The Gunners have seen Hector Bellerin go down with a major injury, and are seemingly looking at other right backs for the summer transfer window.
Having the versatility to play as a right back and right wing back would be ideal for Unai Emery's tactical flexibility, and they appear to have identified Wan-Bissaka as the top target.
The speedy 21-year-old started out as a winger and remains a threat going forward despite converting to a right back, but his defensive play has been simply outstanding for the Eagles since his debut a year ago.
A host of clubs will want Wan-Bissaka, but The Sun claim Arsenal hope to tempt Crystal Palace into a deal by offering players in part-exchange.
Utility man Maitland-Niles or star winger Nelson – two homegrown talents – are the players named as potentially being offered up to Palace, but it remains to be seen whether they're interested.
It would be a shock to see Nelson offered, as he has scored six goals in 18 games out on loan at Hamburg this term, whilst Maitland-Niles has been in Emery's first-team this season.
Yet maybe Arsenal know that it will take a stunning offer to tempt Palace into business, and offering up either of those young talents may just help them land Wan-Bissaka come the end of the season.
