Arsenal are planning a bid for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. The Sunday People believes Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay up to £15m for the former Manchester United player.
The 20-year-old French international joined the Serie A champions last summer and despite a good season with Antonio Conte's team - he scored five goals from 18 starts - may leave the club in the coming months. Pogba is believed to be unhappy at the racial abuse he was subjected to in last month's Turin derby.
The Italians have also had to discipline Pogba in the past, with the player sent off in a league game against Palermo for spitting at an opponent.
Wenger has tracked Pogba over the past few years and twice failed to sign him - once with former club Le Havre and then with United. This time around, with a reported £70m war chest, Wenger believes he can land his target. Pogba is contracted to Juventus until the end of the 2015/16 season.
Pogba will be expected, if he comes to north London, to replace Cameroon's Alex Song in a holding midfield role. The Cameroonian signed for Barcelona last summer and has yet to be properly replaced.
Wenger's present options in that field include England international Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, of whom the former has fitness problems and the latter is inconsistent. Former Everton man Mikel Arteta is an option but at 31 the Spaniard is not a long-term solution.
Stoke City's Steven N'Zonzi is also an option. The Potters' 24-year-old star was tracked by both the Gunners and Chelsea last summer, according to the Mail Online. He has since handed a transfer request at the Britannia. This has been rejected but a £10m+ could be enough to persuade them to sell.
Freddie Ljungberg on Arsenal's Fourth Place
Former midfielder Freddie Ljungberg has criticised the Gunners for celebrating a fourth-place finish. The ex-Swedish international spent nine seasons with the club, scoring 72 goals in 328 appearances.
"I'm from the old school where, if you don't win a trophy every year, then it is a big failure. We will see what happens in the summer and hopefully Arsenal will have a better team next season," he said.
