Arsenal Face Competition For Top Midfield Target

Arsenal are due to face competition in their attempts to sign Montpellier’s attacking midfielder Younes Belhanda, as the new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has put the Morocco international on top of his wish-list.

Arsene Wenger has been looking high and wide for a top attacking midfielder he can bring to the club, but he hasn’t had much luck until now. Ever since Fabregas and Nasri left the club the French manager has been looking to find top quality replacements for them, and found an amazing player in Mikel Arteta after bringing him from Everton, but Wilshere’s season-long injury didn’t help his cause at all.

Arsenal have competition from Man United for top young English star

!8-year old Nick Powell is yet another product of Crewe and Dario Gradi’s youth system. The midfielder, who has scored 14 goals in 55 games for Crewe is the latest of the team’s players to be set for the big time. Both Danny Murphy and David Platt rose through the ranks at Crewe to play at the highest level. Dario Gradi is famous for his academy at Crewe and is now fully focused on this after stepping down as manager of the club.

M’Vila’s Move To Arsenal Still Uncertain

It is constantly being rumoured that the next big Arsenal arrival will be the Rennes’ defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila, but the situation is still very mysterious given the lack of official statements.

We all know that Arsene Wenger has spoken on many occasions about M’Vila’s incredible skills and how he could be helpful for the club, and the French midfielder also spoke about a possible interest in a move to Arsenal, but nothing more.

“If it is Wenger who asks you then of course that changes things.”, said M’Vila earlier this season.
