Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is weighing up moving for a new midfield signing.
The Daily Mail says Mikel Arteta’s ankle injury will prompt Arsenal to consider their transfer options over the coming days.
The need for more defensive qualities in his midfield remains. Much faith has been placed in the versatility of Calum Chambers but Arsenal have taken a fresh look at his former Southampton clubmate Victor Wanyama.
The Kenya midfielder impressed scouts in last week’s game against Liverpool where he helped suppress the influence of Steven Gerrard on the game.
