Arsenal VERY INTERESTED in £9m CONSISTENT Premier League performer!

Arsene Wenger is apparently a big fan.

Everton are ready to break the bank to keep Joseph Yobo away from Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Mirror says Yobo is to be offered a new £6million contract.

The Nigerian has just over a year left on his current deal, and the Goodison club will open talks to ensure they do not lose him for a reduced fee.

Yobo has indicated he wants to stay, despite interest from Arsenal and Chelsea. (

Arsenal could well do with another centre back in their squad, and although no doubt Phillipe Senderos will be returning to the club in the summer Arsene Wenger may well feel he needs a good defender and not an average one. Gallas and Toure are the best pairing at the club but there have been doubts about William’s future and he could well leave in the summer. Kolo has been better of late and there had been some talk of a potential swoop for Newcastle United’s Bassong but perhaps a move for Yobo would be a better bet? The Nigerian has been a very consistent performer since arriving at Goodison Park almost six years ago and he may well choose to look for a challenge elsewhere if Everton don’t hurry up and make him an offer he can’t refuse. Who do Arsenal fans think make up the best pairing at the club and would Joseph Yobo be a decent addition to the Emirates squad?
