Arsenal boss Wenger will try again for Everton defender Jagielka

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to try again for Everton defender Phil Jagielka.

The Mail on Sunday says Arsenal are expected to make a renewed bid for Everton centre-half Jagielka this week as the club come to terms with the imminent departures of Cesc Fabregas, who flies to Barcelona on Monday to complete his £35million move, and Samir Nasri, who the club are now willing to sell to Manchester City for £20m.

Given Everton manager David Moyes's unwillingness to sell Phil Jagielka and the player's contentment at Everton, only a £20m bid is likely to succeed, but Arsenal are reluctant to pay that for a player who is 29 this week.

A source close to Jagielka said he is "ambitious for Champions League football but sensible", indicating that he will not agitate for a move unless Everton decide to sell him.
