Arsenal fans are given a huge boost in the Football Transfer Tavern, after the Express revealed that they are favourites to sign Paris-Saint Germain and former Newcastle star Yohan Cabaye.
It is believed the Gunners are leading Manchester United and Liverpool in the race for the wantaway Frenchman, after he has become unhappy at the serious lack of first team football he is getting.
He finds himself behind the likes of Marco Verratti, Thiago Motta, Javier Pastore and Blaise Mantuidi in the pecking order, making it very difficult for him to claim a place in the starting line up.
It is almost a year since the midfielder left the Premier League to join Laurent Blanc’s side, hoping the move would advance his career to the next level.
But it seems he misses playing in the Premier League and this has alerted the Premier giants mentioned above, as they are all preparing £19m moves for the 28-year-old in January.
Arsene Wenger has always been a fan of Cabaye and he was very disappointed to miss out on him when he moved to the Ligue 1 side.
But now he is more desperate than ever to bring him in as he is seeking cover for the injured Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta.
