WEST Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is facing the biggest battle of his fledgling managerial career as he tries to hang on to rising England star Matthew Upson.

Gianfranco Zola will be very unhappy to see any of his star players leave, but given the financial crisis at the club, it may well be impossible to avoid. If Wenger is really considering bringing back England international Upson back to the club, then I am sure the former Luton man (who spent six years at the north London club) would surely jump at the chance. I think the centre back is one of the few players that Arsene has released during his tenure at the club who he could have let leave a little too hastily. Arguably at his peak the 29-year-old will not come cheap, even with the problems at West Ham, and the figure of £8m has been mentioned, but would still be a good signing at that price? Do Gunners fans want to see their boss secure this signing?
