Villa's Barry waiting for Arsenal offer

Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry wants a move to Arsenal.

The Daily Star says Barry is desperate to play Champions League football during the best years of his career - and the Gunners are his No.1 option.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is still an admirer, but is not keen on splashing out most of his transfer budget taking him to Anfield. That has left Manchester City and Tottenham hopeful of securing a deal - but it is Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger who is considering a £12m bid for the 28-year-old.

Wenger is searching for a dominant midfield player to add to a squad which has plenty of talent but lacks genuine bite, and he has watched Barry several times in the past few months.
