Arsene Wenger certainly means serious business for next season with reports that Southampton midfield power-house Morgan Schneiderlin is set to join Arsenal in the summer.
This is according to the Telegraph who claim the Saints star is set to leave the St Mary’s stadium at the end of the season and Arsenal are now in pole position for a deal that could be concluded soon after the season ends.
Arsenal have been on Schneiderlin’s heels for well over a year now, but looks set to finally land the Frenchman this summer beating fellow north Londoners Tottenham to his signature.
The report says the Saints are already planning for life after the player and will demand a fee of around £25 million for the midfielder; a fee which Arsenal is reportedly willing to pay.
This report will come as good news to Arsenal fans, as Schneiderlin will provide competition and support to Francis Coquelin in the Arsenal midfield.
