St Etienne star Matuidi hopes to hear from Arsenal

Arsenal are interested in St Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

The Daily Star Sunday says Matuidi has told Arsene Wenger he wants to sign for Arsenal.

But Wenger, who has £60million to spend, won't stump up a £13m fee for Matuidi.

Wenger has kept tabs on Matuidi, 24 - but he is not willing to budge from a £10m offer.

Matuidi said: "I am flattered by the interest from clubs abroad and I have always loved the Premier League. It is the best league in the world, so exciting. I really want to be part of that."
