In the news today:
sportsvibe.co.uk report that Arsenal are mulling over Newcastle midfielder, Joey Barton as a possible summer signing. Barton is on a long list of speculated names, but his combative nature, undoubted talent and unsettled Newcastle future could see Wenger sneak in.
Barton is thought to be unhappy with the transfer of team-mate and club captain, Kevin Nolan at Newcastle, and with contract issues seemingly stalling, a move to a team playing Champions League football would surely tempt the England international.
He told Sky Sports News last week: “I don’t want to leave Newcastle, my family’s settled in the area, I’ve got a great working relationship with everybody at the club.
“But if someone came in and, hypothetically, offered me Champions League football, whether I’d signed a five, six or seven-year deal at Newcastle, I’d have to consider it.”
