It is understood that the Democratic of Congo international has already made up his mind to quit the Hawthorns in January after growing disillusioned with life in the west Midlands, and in particular with the attitude and unprofessional behaviour of some of his Baggies team-mates.

Mulumbu has been with West Brom since January 2009, when the 26-year-old joined the club from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

And in the intervening four-year period, the holding midfielder has gone on to appear in 150 Premier League matches for the club, scoring 13 goals in the process, while also developing a growing reputation as being one of the most effective and accomplished players in his position in the English top flight.

So much so that Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger is said to be lining up a swoop for the defensive midfield player at the turn of the year as the experienced Frenchman looks to finally find a replacement in that role for Alex Song, who left to join La Liga champions FC Barcelona in the summer of 2012.
