Arsenal still interested in Shaun Wright-Philips

The Sun understands Arsenal are still interested in luring SWP to the Emirates.

The report claims neither Liverpool nor Tottenham Hotspurs are lagging behind. The both are thought to have indicated their willingness to sign the diminutive playmaker for a cut price of £6m, despite this intrusive infighting amongst the Premiership big guns, Arsenal are still tagged as favourites to win the virtual transfer race for his signature. However, the success of any transactive agreement between the player and the interested parties will certainly boil down to who wants him more!

The 28-year-old England international is currently earning £60k on a weekly basis at the Eastlands, but he's reportedly set to ask for more, as he plans to resurrect his somewhat frail career that has seen his importance to Roberto Mancini at City wane.

Well, it is common knowledge we won't pay that much for a winger given the availability of choice and speedy wingers (notably Walcott and Eboue), we currently have on our payroll, anyway you never can tell! But at least Wenger, to me isn't interested in a wing-man for now given the diversity he has, in the midfield department of the squad.
