CaughtOffside have revealed that Arsene Wenger has finally found a solution to his defensive midfield troubles as the Frenchman is all set to make an £8m bid for ChieckTiote.
The Gunners are in great need of a defensive midfielder and it is said that finding a player for that position is Arsene Wenger’s top priority.
Tiote is not the only name that the North Londoners have been linked with. Others include Southampton’s ace Morgan Schneiderlin, Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira and Bayer Leverkusen’s Lars Bender.
However, there has not been much progress on fillinf that position yet and Wenger would not mind doing so with a cheaper player in form of Tiote.
Newcastle could consider selling the player as Alan Pardew has made a lot of summer signings and the finances of club need some balancing. The Magpies have spent £30m on signing new players which include Remy Cabella, Daryl Janmaat, Emmanuel Riviere, Siem de Jong, Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles.
