AC Milan defender Taye Taiwo's frustration with his current career at AC Milan could lead him joining Arsenal, according to the Metro,

The 26-year-old has made just six appearances for Milan this season and has spoken of his frustration of having been left out of the side constantly at the start of the term.

Arsenal meanwhile are in the mid of a defensive crisis, having lost Carl Jenkinson, Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy and Andre Santos all to long-term injuries.

"I am suffering every day because I don't get to play football. I joined this club in order to play, but I have made only six appearances so far," Taiwo said.

"I don't understand how things work in Italy. Sometimes I even have to watch from the stands, but I really need to play in order to show what I can do.

"It looks like [coach Massimiliano] Allegri doesn't have faith in me. It's not like me to just sit back and do nothing in a situation like this."

Arsenal could well be alerted by Taiwo's revelations with a January loan bid for the African full-back.

Arsene Wenger is expected to be tempted into a move for a striker in the winter window, with Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho leaving Arsenal short, as they head to the African Nations Cup next month.
