Arsene Wenger tried to sign Welsh teenage sensation Gareth Bale before the transfer window shut but was rebuffed. Apparently he has now turned his, and his scouts, attentions towards another Welsh left-sided player.

Joe Ledley has attracted interest with his energetic and cultured displays and has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, leading the Actim points tallies for the Championship.

Ledley recently went on record pledging his allagiance to Cardiff and stating his intent to play in the Premiership with his hometown club, however, a move to Arsenal is sure to tempt any young player and whilst the Gunners have not officially confirmed an interest Wenger is expected to bid for either, or both, of the youngsters in January.

  • Is this kid as good as is reported?? I must confess that I know little about him. I knew we were chasing Bale, but this is all new.

  • Bit off the subject, but how is Gilbert getting on?? I havent really seen any reports about him since he joined you on loan so was just hoping you could let us arsenal fans know how he is doing. He was brilliant in the few games he played for us & I think most gooners are hoping he becomes our first choice right back eventually!!

  • He’s been the weak link at the back for us but is adjusting. Sometimes his positional play lets him down but he’s still worth of his place. Had 3 teeth knocked out but carried on playing!

  • Thanks for that bluebirdshroom!! I wish you all the best for the rest of the season & whilst birmingham have a few arsenal players on loan I really cannot stand that club, mainly due to Karen Brady & Steve Bruce so I hope you win the championship!!

  • Thanks gooner! We hope so too and we can see already that little Kerrea is learning pretty fast. Hows about buying Bale not Ledley and then just loaning Bale back to us?? That’d be nice!
