Arsenal are preparing a bid for West Bromwich Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu.The Sun says the Congo international feels that the time is right for him to leave the Hawthorns.

"I've had approaches from Arsenal," said the 26-year-old.

"I could leave this winter. This is the right time for me to set my sights higher. I'm ready to join a top-four club.

"We are not professional enough in the way we manage our games - for example our draw at Chelsea. We are not mature enough."
