The Rumour

Arsenal and Werder Bremen are battling for Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour.

Dutch sources say both clubs are willing to commit £10 million to sign the exciting young Belgium international.

Standard are reluctant to part with their captain, but cannot afford to turn down any realistic offer for the midfielder.

The Source: (

21 year old Standard Liege Captain Steven Defour is an awesome prospect and a player that has been attracting attention all season and its hard to see him not leaving the Belgian side in the summer and it seems fairly likely he will join his former teammate Marouane Fellaini in the Premier League.

He is a smart player with good vision and a great playmaker and i guess the only reservation about a move to Arsenal would come from the fact that he is the same type of player that the club already has and what Wenger probably needs above all is a defensive midfielder and not another young talented attacking player.

The Likelihood

Defour to Arsenal: Don’t think it will happen, expect instead a move to Aston Villa or maybe Fulham?
