Wenger apparently wants to launch a last-ditch attempt to sign this Aston Villa midfielder after Liverpool’s interest was supposedly ended.

Arsenal are weighing up stepping in for Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry after Liverpool failed to agree terms before a 5pm deadline yesterday. (tribalfootball.com)
Martin O’Neill‘s deadline to Rafa regarding the on/off Barrygate saga has come and gone, although this hasn’t ended speculation about a move to Anfield. However, Arsenal have reportedly upped their interest in the England man, and a bid for the £18m-rated 27-year-old reportedly includes a player exchange which has led many to guess exactly which Emirates stars could be considered as part of such a deal.
Justin Hoyte has attracted the interest of the Midlands club before, as have others, but it’s clear that the lion’s share of any deal would come in the form of a hefty cash bid. Do Gunners fans think that their boss should put so much effort into chasing the Villa man?
