Arsenal are eyeing West Bromwich Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu.

The Sunday Mirror says Arsenal are plotting a £7million January bid for Mulumbu.

Arsene Wenger had the 26-year-old watched at Stoke a week ago and was given glowing reports on his performance.

Arsenal's biggest problem will be persuading the Baggies to sell the Democratic Republic of Congo international, who signed a new contract in the summer.
