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Matuidi primarily plays as a combative defensive midfielder often playing in a withdrawn position as a deep-lying playmaker.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.
