This morning, Arsene Wenger revealed that he will be ready to offer French midfielder, Abou Diaby a new contract with the Gunners, on one condition…he must be fit.
The Metro have reported that the Arsenal boss is happy to offer the 28-year-old midfielder a new contract despite his career being ridden with injuries, keeping him out for the majority of most seasons at the Emirates.
However, Wenger clearly sees Diaby as a player who, when fit, can offer the Gunners something different. Likened to Patrick Vieira, Diaby dominates the midfield battle. Pacey, strong and able to break up and start attacks, he has all the credentials to be a class act. He just needs a run of games under his belt.
So far the Arsenal man has managed just 1 game this season and it was looking as if his Arsenal career was in doubt, but could Wenger’s faith in the Frenchman breathe new life into Diaby?
Arsenal fans, what do you make of Diaby’s new deal?
