Lille's Yohan Cabaye has stated his desire to join Arsenal one day, and the powerful midfielder also explained how he came close to singing for Arsenal 11 months ago.

Reports suggested that Arsene Wenger was following the 24-year-old Frenchman last January, viewing the end-to-end midfielder as a potential Arsenal player capable of strengthening the Gunners physical presence in midfield with his powerful style of play.

Despite the deal failing to materialise, Cabaye still remains hopeful of an Arsenal switch to the Emirates.

In a recent French radio interview the midfielder proclaimed his 'love' for the north London club and their beautiful style of play.

He explained his feelings: "I have a small penchant for Arsenal. They're a team I like," Cabaye told French radio station RMC.

"They have developed a style of play I enjoy. In addition, there are French players and a French coach. It is true that, for me, Arsenal are the team I love in England."

Cabaye will get a chance to further impress English scouts tonight in the France v England friendly, as he has been called up to Laurent Blanc's new-look Squad.

However, Arsenal may have to act soon as they are not the only club who have shown interest in the French powerhouse. Last summer Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseille were all linked with the midfielder.
