The highly-rated full back was linked with a switch to the Emirates during the summer, as well as French giants Lyon and Marseille, however a move never came to fruition.
Arsene Wenger is believed to have made a new full-back high on his list of priorities, with the future of Bacary Sagna still far from certain, and youngster Carl Jenkinson still not considered ready to be a first team regular.
The Arsenal boss is set to face a battle from Marseille to land the 23-year-old, who are looking to revive their interest in Corchia after missing out on the chance to sign free agent Anthony Reveillere.
Both clubs will consider themselves to be in with a chance of completing the deal in January, after being encouraged by the words from the France under-21 international.
“I know what I have to do now during matches and I will see what happens in the next windows,” he told L’Equipe.
“But at the moment, I want to work with my club.
“[Leaving in the winter] can be a possibility, Sochaux negotiate with interested clubs. I prefer to focus on the present at the moment.”
