Arsenal on alert after Yohan Cabaye admits he's unhappy

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye has suggested that he's unhappy with his lack of game time at the Parc des Prince, which could pave the way for Arsenal to launch a bid to take him back to England.

The French international left Newcastle to join PSG for a fee of around £19 million in 2013, but so far he's not been able to nail down a regular first team spot.

The 28-year-old started just four games in Ligue 1 this season - and has been substituted off in three of those occasions - and is now seemingly growing restless by the lack of first team action.

Cabaye says he intends to stick it out for the time being in France, but is desperate to play more football sooner rather than later.

"This doesn't suit me. I've not spoken to Blanc about my situation," he said.

"I am 28 years old and not just starting out. I won't change my style now. The coach's choices must be respected, but I won't quit.

"I have the character & my goal is to show what I can do on pitch. I know I must play very well in order to keep my place in team."

Driving seat

Arsenal are in the driving seat for his services should he decide to leave PSG at the end of the season. The Gunners are short of options in defensive midfield, and while Cabaye wouldn't necessarily fit that mould he was heavily linked with a move to north London before his return to France and Arsene Wenger may be tempted to swoop again.

Their problems in midfield were highlighted in their 2-0 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday. The loss means Arsenal have won just two Premier League games this term - with their last victory coming against Aston Villa last month.


Wenger was embroiled in a touchline scrap with Jose Mourinho during that game, although the FA have deemed that he won't face any further punishment for the incident.

Laurent Koscielny, who gave away a penalty in the first half to gift Chelsea their opening goal, has now shed some light on why his boss was so enraged following a tackle from Gary Cahill on Alexis Sanchez.

There is a long history of bitterness between them,’ he said.

‘The coach (Wenger) was upset because three days before Alexis Sanchez had received the same challenge against Galatasaray (in the Champions League) and then the player had also only received a yellow card.’
