Gilles Yapi Yapo and Mamadou Dansoko are the players in question and they are due to have trials in North London in a bid to earn a dream move to The Premiership.
The 18-year-old midfielders, who are due in England on Sunday, are ready to leave Asec Mimosas, a club that has already seen Didier Zokora and Aruna Dindane move to Genk and Anderlecht respectively, this week.
Wenger (pictured) is clearly determined to lay solid foundations for the future at Highbury is clear with the Ivory Coast duo following numerous French youngsters into the club.
However, Bothroyd has claimed that Arsenal are neglecting their own youth system, in the wake of his move to Coventry.
"Arsenal want to buy success but Coventry are bringing up the youth," said the 18-year-old attacker. "The first team are not interested in youth at Arsenal.
"The manager`s job is always on the line and he needs success now. If a few young players come through, that`s a bonus, but he wants success now."
