Arsenal are allegedly after Blaise Matuidi, PSG’s midfielder who has recently been linked with a move to Manchester United.

It seems highly unlikely that there is any truth to this rumour whatsoever as Arsenal have so many midfielders that even after letting a couple go in the summer they still have no way to get all their best ones in to the same side.

Of course, that’s never really an issue as it is a law of the Universe that most of them will be injured for the majority of the season anyway.

So, maybe there is some truth to this, then, and Wenger is being proactive ahead of the inevitable injury storm that will start 30 seconds after the transfer window shuts.

I wouldn’t bet my house on it.

Juventus are also said to after the Frenchman with Arsenal wanting him to add steel to their midfield according to journalists who clearly missed that we have already signed Granit Xhaka.

PSG don’t even want to sell and we all know if they don’t want to, they don’t have to.
