Premier League side Arsenal are interested in West Bromwich Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu, and may make an offer for him in January in order to bolster up their options.
The holding-midfield man has established himself in the Premier League as a strong figure in the centre of the park, and that is something Arsenal have lacked since losing Patrick Vieira.
However, Mathieu Flamini’s return has certainly added some grit into The Gunners’ midfield, but Arsene Wenger is desperate to have options in each position, and Mulumbu may be his answer.
The Congo international has even revealed in an interview that Arsenal are interested in him, and he has admitted that he needs to aim higher than West Brom.
‘I have had approaches from Arsenal,’ he said.
‘I could leave this winter. This is the right time for me to set my sights higher. I’m ready to join a top-four club.
‘We are not professional enough in the way we manage our games – for example our draw at Chelsea. We are not mature enough.’
