Website Goal, as reported by Metro, is reporting that Arsene Wenger is looking to bolster his defensive options at the end of the 2017-18 season.
Arsenal have conceded 41 goals in 30 games in the Premier League in the current campaign to raise questions about their back four.
The same article states that Arsenal have composed a list of potential replacements for Hector Bellerin, who is attracting interest from FC Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United.
The 22-year-old has been a regular at right-back in the Arsenal team over the past three and a half seasons at the Emirates Stadium, although his performances have dipped over the past 12 months or so.
According to the same story, Arsenal are interested in signing Darmian to replace Bellerin in the Gunners squad should the Spain international complete a big-money move in the summer transfer window.
The north London side have invested in their attack over the past nine months following the additions of Alexandre Lacazette, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal are in sixth place in the Premier League table this season, while the Gunners will take on CSKA Moscow in the Europa League semi-finals.
