Arsenal defender Kolo Toure has two brothers who are professional football players. His youngest brother, Ibrahim, plays his trade in the Ivory Coast while Yaya Toure plays as a holding midfielder for Barcelona.
According to News of the World, Arsene Wenger now wants to add Barcelona’s Toure to his own troops as he is still seeking a replacement for Mathieu Flamini – who has left for AC Milan this summer.
Barcelona would be willing to let Toure go for a reasonable price – in this case ‘reasonable’ is not defined by the English tabloid – as new arrival Keita is Guardiola’s preferred choice for the holding midfield position.
Should The Gunners complete a deal for Yaya, they will rue not signing him when they had the opportunity before he joined the Spanish giants. The Ivory Coast midfielder will surely be costly for Wenger.
