Arsenal ready to make cheeky £5 million bid for England midfielder?

Plenty of names have been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks and today sees another name enter Manchester City midfielder Shaun Wright-Phillips

The 29-year old has failed to nail down at first team place at City under new boss Roberto Mancini and with the England international currently rejecting the offer of a new contract at Eastlands, there is a strong possibility that Wright-Phillips could be on the move this summer.

Arsene Wenger will no doubt have money to spend when the transfer window opens in July but whether or not the Frenchman decides to splash the cash is the big question.

There is no doubt Wenger needs to spend if Arsenal are to be considered genuine title contenders for next season and personally, I think signing Wright-Phillips wouldn’t be a bad move at all.

For a player who still clearly has plenty of ability, I reckon Wright-Phillips would prove terrific value for money at the rumoured £5 million. It would be interesting to see if Arsenal do make a bid of £5 million, would Manchester City accept.
