Arsenal and Barcelona in battle for Toulouse midfielder Capoue


Arsenal face a battle with Spanish giants Barcelona for the signature of £9.5m-rated Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has lined up a move for Capoue after cooling his interest in Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila, reports talkSPORT.
However, reports in the Catalan media suggest that new Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova has identified Capoue and M'Vila as potential replacements for Seydou Keita, who has ended his four-year Nou Camp spell to join Chinese club Dalian Aerbin.
And having spent a portion of his summer transfer budget on Spain left-back Jordi Alba, Vilanova could opt for Capoue, who would cost the Catalan club £6.5m less than France international M'Vila.
