This source claims that Wenger will make another move for this very hot French prospect!
There are reports that Arsenal is set to revive their £10 million deal for midfielding star Blaise Matuidi, at the end of the current season.
Matuidi said: “I asked myself questions at the end of August after Arsenal showed their interest. An opportunity to join them is not something ordinary. It gives you great self-esteem – it is Arsenal.
“At the end of the season we will have talks, anything is possible.”
“I did not talk to Wenger – but I did not get angry that St Etienne did not let me go.”
Romeyer, head of St Etienne, has confirmed rumours that he rejected Arsenal’s interest:
“Wenger called me at the end of August to ask if Blaise was for sale. He didn’t make an offer as Blaise was not for sale. Next June we will have a meeting with Blaise and his agent about his future.” (Soccerglobe.com)
Clearly when Arsenal come calling young French players are always going to feel the pull of a dream move to the Premier League and Matuidi doesn’t seem any different. The Saint Etienne midfielder has apparently been scouted by a number of English clubs with the Emirates outfit seemingly the most likely to capture the Under 21 international who comes highly recommended by Arsenal’s French scout Gilles Grimandi. Do Gunners fans feel the club really needs even more young talents of should they be populating the squad with more experienced heads to give the club more balance?
