Arsenal are ready to spend up to £27m on Southampton’s French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, reports CaughtOffside.
The Gunners have been eyeing various holding midfielders all summer, as they currently only have Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta to perform the role.
Schneiderlin is the last of Southampton’s ‘top’ players not to have been sold this summer, and the 25-year-old would likely jump at a chance to move to the Champions League club.
With two days of the transfer window remaining, Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board are expected to put all his efforts into securing Schneiderlin’s signature.
He’s combative, industrious and hard working, but also scored two goals for the Saints against West Ham in the Premier League this Saturday.
