Sacked Blackburn Rovers captain Christopher Samba is being linked with Arsenal.
Samba was stripped of the Rovers captaincy by caretaker boss Steve Kean after insisting he wants to leave Ewood Park.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp yesterday denied he was interested in signing the centre-half.
But the Daily Star says Arsenal want Blackburn rebel Samba to beef up their back four. (Tribalfootball)
Given that Blackburn Rovers appear to be ready to allow Christopher Samba to get his wish of an Ewood Park exit it would make a great deal of sense for Arsene Wenger to make a move for the giant Congolese international as the Arsenal boss has spoken repeatedly of the need to beef up his defensive options.
The 26 year old had his captaincy taken away from him after the French born centre back made it clear he wanted to leave following the harsh sacking of former boss Sam Allardyce and now the Lancashire club is looking to cash in on any good offer for the former Hertha Berlin man.
Arsenal would be more than capable of stumping up the reported £8m valuation and Samba has shown enough ability during his four and a half seasons of Premier League action to suggest that he could be a very effective Gunners signing.
