Arsene Wenger Wants Teenager Blaise Matuidi From St Etienne


Interesting transfer news are coming from the Premier League and it has been reported that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has opened talks over a possible transfer for St Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

Local British newspapers have reported that Arsene Wenger had talks with 22-year-old French Under-21 starlet Matuidi yesterday about a £2.5million deal.

But it is believed that Matuidi goes in as one for the future, with Wenger also trying to sign a senior central midfielder to be added to the current squad.

Matuidi primarily plays as a combative defensive midfielder often playing in a withdrawn position as a deep-lying playmaker. He has so far played 62 matches for St Etienne and scored 2 goals in all competition.
