Arsenal step up bid for Bischoff

With Samir Nasri now signed, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to finalise a deal for Amaury Bischoff.

Wenger will throw midfielder Bischoff straight into Arsenal's first-team.

Bischoff, 21, turned down an increased wage offer from Bundesliga club Werder Bremen and insisted on joining Wenger.

He will arrive at the Emirates on a free but the Gunners will have to pay compensation that is yet to be decided by UEFA.

Bischoff admitted: "Bremen was superb but Arsenal is a huge opportunity for me. Wenger trusts me to be in the first-team and he has not put me under any pressure for the move. He told me to take all the time I needed."
