Arsenal boosted in race for Newcastle old boy

Arsenal could rekindle their interest in Yohan Cabaye, with the Frenchman having confessed that he’s growing frustrated with his current situation at Paris Saint-Germain.

The silky playmaker swapped Newcastle for a move back to his homeland in January, but despite costing the Ligue 1 champions £19m, the 28-year-old has been far from a first-team regular.

With a host of talented and experienced rivals for a starting berth, Cabaye has been rotated in and out of the XI by boss Laurent Blanc – making just four outings so far this season.

Although he admits that he doesn’t want to walk out on PSG just yet, the pass-master says that the current state of affairs is far from ideal for him:

“This doesn’t suit me. I’ve not spoken to Blanc about my situation,” he told L’Equipe.

“I am 28 years old and not just starting out. I won’t change my style now. The coach’s choices must be respected, but I won’t quit.

“I have the character and my goal is to show what I can do on pitch. I know I must play very well in order to keep my place in team.”

Arsenal were linked with Cabaye last year, with reports at the time having claimed that a deal to take him to north London was all but done.

The Gunners also chased him shortly before he joined PSG.
