St Etienne skipper Perrin emerges as top Arsenal target

Saint Etienne captain Loic Perrin is emerging as a top January target for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Perrin is versatile in that he can play centre-back or as a defensive midfielder and, at around £6 million, would not put a huge dent in the transfer budget at a time when the majority of the best players in Europe are not available.
