Wenger keen to land £10million Everton's star  

Sunday, 29 March 2009

JOLEON LESCOTT is the most target for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Lescott has been consistent for the last two season at everton would be good impact if he join the gunner next summer.

The Frenchman has been a long-time admirer of the versatile Everton star and knows he needs top-class reinforcements at the heart of his defence.

Lescott has also interested mega-rich Manchester City but he committed his future to Goodison Park a year ago by signing a four-year deal.

That will not deter Wenger, however, who is prepared to pay over £10million for the England player.

Wenger wants Lescott as an out-and-out centre-half - a position he has not always been guaranteed at Everton but where he has been outstanding this season.

Arsenal's current first-choice centre-half pairing, Kolo Toure and former skipper William Gallas, do not speak to each other.

With their resurgence in form, the Gunners look certain to be able to offer Lescott Champions League football next season, a big plus in a World Cup year.

But Toffees boss David Moyes will fight tooth and nail to hold on to Lescott.

He was Everton's Player of the Year last season - with 10 goals in all competitions - and is seen as one of the foundations to the club's future.
