Arsenal consider bid for England defender

Manchester City and England's Micah Richards

Arsenal are looking to sign England defender Micah Richards, according to the Mirror.

The Manchester City right-back has been linked with a move out of the club, despite having two years left on his contract.

But Richards, who only played 7 Premier League matches last season, is considering handing in a transfer request, after learning that Roma and Inter Milan are interested in his services. The right-back’s chances of getting into the first team are limited by the fact he is fighting for a place with club captain Pablo Zabaleta.

Arsenal are monitoring Richard’s situation, and could line him up as a replacement for Bacary Sagna. The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to France, with Monaco and PSG reportedly interested.

The 25-year-old is valued at £12million by Inter Milan, but he could be offered a chance to stay in the Premier League by Arsene Wenger.

Richards could be just one of many big names moving to the Emirates this summer, after Wenger was given a £70million transfer kitty to spend this summer. The right-back would fit Arsenal’s style of attacking fullbacks.

City are keen to offer Richards a new contract, but the 25-year-old is believed to be considering his options first.

Would Richards do well at Arsenal? Should he leave City?
