Gareth Barry seems to have been around for ages but he is still only 27! Now it appears that his Villa days are numbered and Arsenal have joined a plethora of clubs looking to sign the England international.
Arsenal are said to be preparing to bid for £14m rated Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry but they face stiff competition from Liverpool and Chelsea. (The People)
Martin O’Neill seems resigned to losing his skipper as Barry seems keen to partake in the Champions League and win trophies. How badly will Villa fans miss their midfield man? And do Arsenal fans feel he would fit in well at Emirates?
