Arsenal are eyeing Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul. The Daily Star says the France international defender is out of contract this summer.

And he has told friends he is keen on the idea of moving across north London to the Gunners.

Centre-back Kaboul, 28, is best friends with Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby and boss Arsene Wenger will need cover in that area with Thomas Vermaelen poised to leave at the end of the season.

Any deal is certain to cause controversy and anger among fans of the White Hart Lane club.

They never forgave former skipper and England star Campbell for making the same switch in 2001.
