The 21 year old Kenyan has impressed during his time at Parkhead and his showings at Champions League level has proven to any doubters that the tough tackling midfielder is able to cut it at the highest level.
This source believes that Wenger will forgo interest in bringing Alex Song back from Barcelona in an attempt to bring in Wanyama, who can apparently be picked up for a bid in the region of £10m. That’s a fair price and one that would see the Glasgow side make a large profit on the £900k they invested in the player.
Arsenal could certainly use a steely midfield to help provide time and space, as well as protection, to the North London club’s more creative talents.
Wanyama is more than just a defensive midfield presence with the rangy midfielder able to make big striding runs into opposition territory and does also weigh in with his fair share of goals.
With Abou Diaby perennially injured and Emmanuel Frimpong seemingly surplus to requirements there is certainly room for such an acquisition.
