Arsenal update: the club is tracking Celtic’s Victor Wanyama

Commiserations to Celtic who were pretty unlucky and the victim of some iffy refereeing in their Champions League game against Juventus last night.

But with progression in the CL unlikely and a rather uneventful stroll to the Scottish Premiership a cert again next year the English vultures are starting to circle.

And top of the list of players who could be heading south is the Kenyan Victor Wanyama.

According to The Mail Arsenal apparently had the powerful holding midfielder watched last night and are mulling over a move for him in the summer.

The club are painfully aware that they have never replaced Alex Song and although Mikkel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey can both play in the holding role they lack the physical presence required when Arsenal need to be more defensively minded,

The paper also suggest that the club are keen on Etienne Capoue, who they apparently almost signed on transfer deadline day and West Ham’s Mohamed Diame.

I suspect that the Arsenal scouting team might be spending a fair bit of time in Glasgow in the coming months.
