Arsenal looking to sign French goalscorer

Reports suggest that Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, could be gunning for Chelsea wideman, Florent Malouda.

Wenger is desperate to strengthen his thin squad after suffering an 8-2 battering at Old Trafford on Sunday, and is looking to players with top-flight experience.

The 31 year-old was the sole goalscorer in France’s 2010 World Cup campaign, netting against host nation South Africa, in a 2-1 defeat.

The Gunners are expected to offer around £8m for the midfielder, and Andre Villas-Boas may be tempted to sell, given the player’s age and the arrival of Juan Mata.

Blues £10m-rated centre-back, Alex, is also attracting the attention of the Gunners, however they are only willing to offer £7m for the Brazilian.
