Cheikhou Kouyate: Admits Arsenal have been interested in the past

The Senegal international has revealed that he will be leaving his Belgian employers at the end of the season.

A switch to Arsenal has been mooted, with the Gunners known to have held an interest in his services in the past.

Kouyate is reluctant to speculate on where he will be playing in 2013/14, but admits a Premier League opportunity would appeal.

He said: "I like Arsenal because they play good football. There have been enquiries before, but nothing happened.

"I do not want to say where I am going, but this will be my last season with Anderlecht.

"Until I leave, I will continue to give 100 per cent."

Borussia Dortmund, Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkala are also said to be keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old centre-half.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
