Arsenal line-up swoop for Ligue 1 playmaker

ArsenalArsenal fans are surprised by the latest rumours concerning their club that they’ve heard in the Transfer Tavern, with a playmaker, not a defensive-midfielder, being lined-up by the Gunners.

Get French Football state that Arsenal sent scouts to watch Nice’s Vincent Koziello on Friday night and were impressed with his performance, where he scored the final goal in a 3-0 victory over French giants Lyon.

A positive report is set to be sent back to Arsene Wenger, who is suspected to be in the market for midfield additions with almost all of his contingent in the middle of the field suffering injury blows at some stage of the season so far.

Arsenal are expected to face competition for Koziello’s signature though, as Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen are also both reported to have attended the match on Friday evening.

Koziello has made 11 appearances for Nice this season, scoring two goals, and at just 20-years-old is tipped for an exciting future.

Arsenal fans, is this a signing you need? Should you be focusing your attentions on a defensive midfielder? Let us know in the comments below!
