Arsenal are considering a move to sign Manchester City defender Micah Richards even though Arsene Wenger realises the chances or persuading Roberto Mancini to sell one of his Eastlands stars to a direct rival are very slim indeed.
The 22 year old has stated his unhappiness at not being a first team regular and his intention to look for a new club after starting just 10 Premier League matches this season. Wenger has long been an admirer of the adaptable defender and is reportedly willing to make a bid for the £12m rated Birmingham born England international.
The Emirates boss has been looking to bring in further defensive reinforcements and the fact that Micah Richards can ply his trade effectively both at full back and in the centre of defence is an added bonus. Roberto Mancini will have to balance his insistence at not allowing his players to join rival clubs with the very real issue of unhappy players affecting the general mood of the squad.
Similar issues have apparently prevented Shay Given from leaving the club for pastures new and have also got in the way of Emmanuel Adebayor’s attempts to make a proposed move to Tottenham.
