Five players who could interest Emirates Stadium boss Arsene Wenger.
Chieck Tiote is a player who could well suit Arsene Wenger down to the ground. The Gunners boss has a number of creative midfielders who help to push the play along but they do not have a recognised defensive midfield presence and though Abou Diaby has performed admirably in a combined role it would be wise to consider a move for the Newcastle United star.
The former FC Twente man has had two standout seasons at St James’ Park and may feel that the fifth place finish the Magpies secured last term was as far as he could progress at the club and could therefore be tempted by a move to a side that can offer him Champions League football.
Alan Pardew would be loathed to lose the Ivory Coast international but if a decent offer was made then owner Mike Ashley could be enticed into cashing in on a player that cost just £3.5m
