Arsenal target Kevin Anin has refused to train with Sochaux, as interest from the London club in the midfielder grows, according to AFP.

Anin gave an injury as the justification for not showing up to training, but Sochaux president Alexandre Lacombe revealed it might not be the real reason the 25-year-old wasn’t present.


"He apparently has a foot injury, although I have to say I have my doubts," he said.

"I am not going to spin yarns, it's not clear what his situation is."

Arsenal have been linked to numerous midfielders since Cesc Fabregas exited the club for Barcelona. Yann M’Vila and Eden Hazard have recently come up as prospects, and the Gunners now have a decent transfer budget to use while staying in the black this summer.

Whether or not Sochaux will negotiate a move with Arsenal remains to be seen though, with the club digging their heels in over keeping Anin on board for the next season at least.

Anin is not the only player to strike for a move away from the French outfit, with Modibo Maiga also refusing to take part in training, in the hopes of a move to Newcastle.
