Arsenal Keeps Tab On £8m Defensive Midfielder

Gilbert Imbula

Arsenal is interested in 20-year-old French midfielder Gilbert Imbula. Gilbert was watched several times in January according to daily mail as the Gunners try to bring in the much needed defensive midfield cover after they sold Alex Sond to Barca last summer.

Gilbert is a player for Guingamp a club in the second division of the French league. He holds the record of the youngest player to play in the second tier of the French league.

The midfielder is reported available if the Gunners are willing to pay 8 Million pounds. However, they will have competition from Chelsea who as reported by daily mail in January were very keen and Lyon who recently joined the race to sign highly rated youngster.

Arsenal has been recently linked with Fellaini, Fabregas, Rooney and a host of other world class players and Gilbert Imbula is surely not going to be a signing that will delight the Arsenal fan base.
