Arsenal Linked With Kenyan Defensive Midfielder
Victor Wanyama, a 21 year old defensive midfielder who currently plays for Celtic in Scotland has been rumoured to be looking for a move to the EPL because he is unhappy with Celtics use of his abilities. The teams that are rumoured to be in contact with him are Arsenal and Man Utd.
Since Wanyama signed for Celtic, he has been a revelation. He is a tank, of massive proportions, but is very skilled on the ball, and can score goals. Out of 29 scottish league apperances he has scored 4 goals. Don’t be quick to assume that just because he scores goals he “likes to go on the attack too much”, because that just would not be true, he is very defensive minded. .......Read the full article here

There have been some really strange Arsenal transfer rumours this week, but this must surely stand out as the most unlikely. The Star reckons that Arsene Wenger is targeting Tottenham’s Jermain Defoe to replace Nicklas Bendtner.
Defoe has had anawful season at Spurs. He’s either been injured, out-of-form or just plain whinging all year at White Hart Lane, and when given a chance to prove himself again he has gone missing completely.
Harry Redknapp would love to get £10m from anyone for the 29 year-old prima donna so he can buy a proper striker, so why on earth would Arsenal even consider him, even if he didn’t play for the Spuds! .......Read the full article here
