Arsenal are considering joining the battle for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Telegraph says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is evaluating his options in central midfield.

Arsenal failed with a January deadline-day bid for Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue but have been monitoring other alternatives, including Celtic's Wanyama.

Southampton had a £12 million bid accepted for Wanyama but that deal has collapsed due to the personal terms and agent fees that were being demanded. Liverpool are also interested.
