It looks like the Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin has now played his last game for the South Coast club after injuring himself in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham this weekend, and his manager Ronald Koeman has revealed that it is the player’s decision as to where he wants to go this summer.
“Morgan will be out until the end of the season,” Koeman said in the Express. “He has injured ligaments, left knee and he will be out for four or five weeks, so that means until the end of the season.
“I don’t know if he’s played his last game, or about interest or about bids.
“We like to keep everybody but we know sometimes it’s difficult.
“There aren’t any serious bids for the player. He is happy but it’s up to the player.”
Strangely enough Tottenham were favourites to sign the French international last season, but Schneiderlin himself has made it clear that he wants to be playing in the Champions League next season, and with Arsenal looking for some competition for Francis Coquelin it is highly likely that Schneiderlin will coming to the Emirates.
I have just checked out the betting on the Saints star coming to Arsenal next season, and we are hot odds-on favourites with 888bet, 32Red and Skybet while Betvictor are slightly more reserved at 11/10, so there has obviously been a lot of money staked on him coming to Arsenal. I certainly wouldn’t want to bet against it!
