ARSENAL target summer swoop for Lille hardman Yohan Cabaye [Video]

Reported in todays press (The Sun)

ARSENAL are targeting a summer swoop for Lille hardman Yohan Cabaye in a bid to beef up their midfield.

The Frenchman is seen as the ideal candidate to add steel to Arsene Wenger’s squad, which has lacked a dominant enforcer since Mathieu Flamini and Gilberto Silva quit the Emirates last summer.

Alex Song, Denilson and Abou Diaby have all struggled to make an impact this season and the Gunners currently sit fifth in the Premier League — five points behind Aston Villa in the fourth Champions League spot.

Cabaye, 23, is under contract with Lille until 2013 but is said to be keen on a switch to England.

And Arsenal are confident they can lure him to London despite interest from Lyon, Marseille and Bordeaux.

    Wanna see more of him “enforcing”

    From the video above, he don’t look much like a hardman, he looks like a skillful attacking midfielder, but then again people would just put up clips of his fantastic attacking moments, even John Jensen once scored a beauty!

  3. Ben Mills says:

    The same Denilson who was man of the match against West Ham? The same Denilson who has carried the midfield (along with Nasri) without Fabregas, Walcott and Rosicky? Denilson has been fantastic this season, why replace him with a player that could be absolute pants. I bet you right now that Denilson is our first choice defensive/central midfielder for many years to come.

    Probabely,if ARSENAL are targeting a summer swoop for Lille hardman Yohan Cabaye in a bid to beef up their midfield. I personally support idea 100% due to fact that we lost title hopes not, because the team was weak but it was lacking of maturity players. Let him come up!!!

    Denilson/Cabaye/Nasri is the future midfield of Arsenal. 4-3-3 is the way to go, Sagna/Toure/Lescott/Clichy, defense cover, Clyne/Djourou/Bassong/Gibbs. Denilson/Cabaye/Nasri in the middle with Rosicky/Arshavin/Van-persie up front. Midfield cover, Song/Diaby/Ramsey/Fran/Wilshere and Walcott/Vela/Bendtner/Eduardo as forward cover
