Jun. 03, 2010 - Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa - epa02184867 Handout supplied by FIFA shows England player Matthew Upson upon the arrival of the England national soccer team at OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa, 03 June 2010.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could be considering a bid to bring back former Gunner Matthew Upson back to the club. The Emirates manager is urgently looking to bring new additions to his back line and will have been buoyed by the announcement from West Ham that they are willing to listen to offers for the 31 year old.

The England international has just one year left on his Upton Park contract and is reportedly available to anyone willing to make an offer in the region of £6-7m, a fee the north London club are more than capable of covering. The north London club are urgently looking to beef up their back line before the transfer window closes and have been linked with a myriad of players in recent weeks.

Having failed in bids for Everton centre back Phil Jagielka and Werder Bremen defender Per Mertesacker Wenger has now turned to Sevilla’s French international Sebastien Squillaci but the two clubs appear to be far apart in their valuations of the 30 year old.

Matthew Upson spent six years at Arsenal before being sold to Birmingham City in 2003 and is now near his peak and is a regular part of Fabio Capello’s England set up and would provide very able service to a club looking to make up for the loss of Mikel Silvestre, Sol Campbell and William Gallas.
