Arsenal linked with move for PSG star Jeremy Menez

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have entered the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Jeremy Menez, according to French newspaper La Parisien.

The story, which has also been reported by ESPN, suggests that Arsene Wenger has sensed an opportunity, with Menez struggling to get games at the Parc des Princes.

So far this season, Menez has started just five games in Ligue 1, falling behind the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi and Lucas Moura in the pecking order.

Laurent Blanc is now ready to free up space in his squad by letting the 26-year-old go for €14m.

Both Juventus and Inter Milan have been linked with an interest in Menez, but the French daily is reporting that the attacker would rather move to the Premier League, giving Arsenal the edge in the race.

Menez is primarily a winger but can also play as a forward and behind the striker, making him an ideal proposition for Wenger.

The Arsenal boss has lost Theo Walcott to a serious knee injury and currently has only Olivier Giroud and the unpredictable Nicklas Bendtner to call upon.

Various reports have linked Wenger with a number of attackers including Alvaro Morata and Mirko Vucinic. Menez is now another name to add to a lengthening shortlist.
