Arsene interested in Hammers pair.
The 20-year-old midfielder has already turned out for Wales and has caught the eye with a number of impressive performances.
Meanwhile his Hammers’ team mate Matthew Upson is also linked with a return to the club where he started his career. The England central defender was sold by Wenger to Birmingham City. (Lancashire Evening Post)
This is interesting news indeed. If Arsene Wenger was to try and bring both Jack Collison and Matthew Upson to the Emirates it would sure cost a pretty penny. £12m rated Collison is one of the brightest young talents in the game at the moment and when Man City expressed an interest in Upson in the summer they were quoted a valuation in the region of £15m for the 30 year old centre back.
Given that William Gallas and Thomas Vermaelen have formed a decent centre back partnership I am not sure there is much of a need for bringing back their former player from Upton Park.
20 year old Welsh international Collison may be of more interest to Wenger and the young midfielder has proven his ability at Premier League level but surely Gianfranco Zola will not want to sell such a promising prospect unless the financial crisis at the east London club has hit levels that require a big name player to have be sold off?
