Wenger Looking For Another Spanish Midfielder

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is preparing to launch a £10 million bid for Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta according Sport.co.uk sources. With Cesc Fabregas out for four months Wenger sees the combative midfielder as the ideal replacement for his captain.

Arteta scored twice for Everton in a 3-0 win at home to Sunderland on Sunday and despite being one of the Toffees most consistent performers David Moyes maybe interested in cashing in on his Spanish ace in order to strengthen his attack.

Moyes has been informed by Chairman Bill Kenwright that he can only sign new talent in January if he sells during the transfer window.

Wenger admitted to Canal Plus journalists that he is keen to sign to midfielders if he can in January, however he would not reveal who his targets were.

Wenger said: "I don't need to announce a name, because when you do that there is 50% less chance of making the signing. But I need a creative midfielder and eventually another midfielder, because we are short."
