Morgan Schneiderlin has been one of the midfielder’s of the season.
Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted that he is looking to move to a “big club” in the summer after the Frenchman was forced to stay at St Mary’s this season.
Arsenal’s interest in the St Mary’s star is probably one of the worst kept secrets in football and Schneiderlin may push harder for a move this summer.
Southampton have had an amazing season so far, challenging in the upper reaches of the table, and fell out of the top four for the first time this year at the weekend.
However, with Schneiderlin desperate to play in Europe’s premier club competition, a move to Arsenal may seem more likely should Southampton not finish in those all important top four places.
For the French international, a move to a big club is imperative for him.
“A career passes quickly and I want to play for a big club,” Schneiderlin said (via Daily Express).
“Today I am at Southampton, it’s going well. We’ll see at the end of the season if [a transfer] will happen.”
Despite Coquelin’s impressive performance Arsenal may still look to add another holding midfielder to the squad.
The likes of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Areta and Abou Diaby all have uncertain futures at the north London club and the Gunners have suffered many injuries to players in central midfield.
With Wenger believing he now has a “compact squad” (via Daily Mail), adding Schneiderlin is one of a few potential deals he may pursue this summer.
