Arsenal boss Wenger left sweating on new deals for senior defenders

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is sweating on his senior defensive players and their contract negotiations.

Wenger wants to revamp his central defence and is trying to off-load 25-year-old Swiss centre-back Philippe Senderos.

Sol Campbell, 35, has yet to agree the one-year deal that is on offer, while a dip in form did little to help Mikael Silvestre, 32, who is a free agent.

William Gallas, also 32, is caught up in contract negotiations, but Wenger hopes he will stay.
