Arsenal may make move for Appiah

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is believed to be toying with the idea of bringing Ghana captain Stephen Appiah to the Emirates Stadium.

The former Parma and Juventus midfielder has been without a club since leaving Turkish giants Fenerbahce following a long-standing knee injury, and had been training with the Gunners's London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

However, Arsenal may now offer the Black Stars's skipper a short-term deal with Wenger's side struggling in midfield with injuries to Abou Diaby and, captain, Cesc Fabregas. The 28-year-old has recently been holding talks with Russian champions Rubin Kazan, who will compete in the Champions League next season. "It is important that I get back to playing actively before the start of the World Cup qualifiers so I need regular action," he said. "There are other clubs too who are keen and that goes with my desire to play competitively. "The prospect of playing in the Champions League next season is very attractive to any player so I had to listen to Kazan. The fact that Kazan won the league ahead of two big clubs Lokomotiv and Dynamo shows that they will take Europe by storm and I am excited."
