With Flamini leaving the club in the summer for AC Milan, Arsenal has a defensive gap to fill in their midfield. Arsenal have set their sights on Kolo Toure’s younger brother, Yaya, who currently plays for Barcelona.
Having signed from AS Monaco last summer, the 24-year old Yaya has been one of Barcelona’s better player all throughout the season.
Wenger is said to be willing to offer Ã¢â€šÂ¬10million for the star midfielder, and he hopes that Yaya will become the “new” Patrick Viera of his side.

i think we need more of a makoun/diarra type player to fill flaminis void. Barry would be the best replacement but I cant see that happening.

Cesc could never be expected to fill that role nearly as well, esp given his age and build.

Yaya is a strong player wth successful career. it’ll b a gud idea if Arsen can land hm at d Emirates. As we knw hs big bro is also there at the Emirate, so its gonna b a big boost 4 the team. Gallas form hs bn a thng of concern lately and we cant afford 2 mess things up nxt season. Coach Arsen shld also try d likes of manchester city’s Defender Richards. Its high time
I stil say we Micah Richards Robbi Green Stuart Taylor,I
