Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama has admitted "it would be nice" to join Arsenal during the summer transfer window.

The Kenya international moved to Ronald Koeman's side in summer 2013 from Celtic for around £12.5m after he was named the Scottish Premier League's young player of the year.

The 23-year-old midfielder has since made an impressive impact at the Saints, both under Mauricio Pochettino and Koeman. He made 26 Premier League starting appearances this season.

In April the Kenyan was quoted saying that he had spoke with Arsene Wenger regarding a future move to the Emirates Stadium.

"Wenger has been talking about me. And he has let it be known he would like to sign me this summer," Wanyama was quoted saying, although he later denied on his Twitter account saying: "To cut the story short I have never spoken to Wenger."

One way or another, the Southampton star himself has now reopened speculations over a summer move to London by admitting his desire to play for the Gunners on a Kenyan TV show.

When the presenters asked about the rumours linking him with Wenger's side, Wanyama was quoting by Soka25east responding: "Yes it would be nice to move to Arsenal.

"But at this moment such decisions can only be made by my team Southampton and that is where my concentration as a player is."

Wenger is reportedly looking to bolster his midfield ahead of next season, despite the emergence of Francis Coquelin as a crucial player since his return from loan at Charlton Athletic in December.

The Gunners have also been linked with a move for Wanyama's coveted teammate Morgan Schneiderlin since the January transfer window, with Wenger reportedly earmarking the Frenchman as his top priority.
