Arsenal fans are delighted in the Football Transfer Tavern after The Express wrote that Arsene Wenger is showing intent heading into January as he is preparing a £15 million bid for Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.
Arsenal fans are desperate to fight off competition to land the Frenchman as it is reported that Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United are all keen on signing him.
And if the rumours are true, Wenger will be renewing his interest for the Frenchman after he went in for him last summer and failed following the St Mary’s club ruling out any more departures after their exodus of players.
With the 25-year-old desperate to leave the club, many thought he would’nt be as focused this season with a lack of desire and passion but instead he has been an integral part of their performances this season.
Regarding the interest, Koeman noted: “Keeping Morgan here will not be easy. We will have to see what happens.”
And the Frenchman conceded last month: “A career passes quickly and I want to play for a big club. Today I am at Southampton, it’s going well.
“We’ll see at the end of the season if [a transfer] will happen. If we have qualified for the Champions League, I will make the choice.”
