Published Add your comment

Arsenal are planning to make an improved offer for Phil Jagielka, according to The Times.

The England defender was reportedly subject of a £13 million offer from The Gunners last week.

However, Arsenal are now planning to submit an increased offer of £18 million for Jagielka.


After signing Gervinho from Lille, Arsene Wenger is keen to add to an Arsenal defence which endured a difficult season last term.

Defensive problems, particularly in the Carling Cup final, saw the club's bid for a first trophy in six years fail last season.

As well as Jagielka, Arsenal have also been linked with Blackburn Rovers' Chris Samba and Bolton Wanderers' Gary Cahill.
