Arsenal could be about to revive their interest in Stephen Appiah, with a January move for the Ghana midfielder looking possible.
Appiah, a free agent following his release from Turkish club Fenerbache, had been considering terms to sign at several top European sides.
However, the 27-year-old is keen to ply his trade in England and it is understood Arsenal could now offer him that opportunity as manager Arsene Wenger contemplates a potential move for a player who has seen himself plagued by injury in recent seasons.
“I am training with Brescia at the moment,” he told skysports.com.
“I am happy with my form but I need to get the match fitness, apart from that I am fine.
“I would like to thank my national coach for giving me the chance to play the game against Tunisia
“I heard there will be scouts from Germany and England, I need a football club and very soon I will sign, very soon.”
Wenger has been a long-term admirer of Appiah – known as ‘The Tornado’ – and his instant availability could prompt the Frenchman into entering negotiations with the unattached midfielder, who two years ago revealed he was close to joining the club before a knee injury denied him.
But Appiah still harbours hopes of realising his ‘dream’ to join compatriots Michael Essien, Harminu Dramani and John Pantsil in the Premier League and is confident that he will soon sign for a top flight club.
He said two months ago:
“My dream is to play in the Premier League and with the help of God, I will realise that dream.”
Certainly, Wenger’s depleted midfield requires urgent strengthening, following the recent league blows against Fulham, Hull, Stoke and Aston Villa.
