Arsenal boss Wenger goes directly to Mourinho for Real Madrid's Granero

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is closing in on a deal for Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero.

Marca says Wenger has approached Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho to get an update on his availability.

Granero has been strongly linked with a £6m move to the north London club and Wenger is hoping to land his signature in January.

With Abou Diaby suffering yet another injury setback and Jack Wilshere facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, the Arsenal boss is keen to strengthen his midfield and has identified Granero as one of his main transfer targets.
