clipped from www.imscouting.comReports in both the Daily Mirror and Daily Mail this morning suggest Arsenal have revived their interest in Saint Etienne defensive midfielder Blaise Matuidi.Both newspapers claim that Arsene Wenger has stepped up his interest in Matuidi with Cesc Fabregas set to miss the next three weeks with a hamstring injury.According to John Cross in the Daily Mirror: "Wenger has already had lengthy discussions with St Etienne and 22-year-old Matuidi over a move to Arsenal. St Etienne are demanding £6m while Arsenal want to pay half that figure and are prepared to take the deal right to the wire in the transfer window to drive a hard bargain."Cross adds: "France Under-21 starlet Matuidi, a holding midfielder, would jump at the chance of moving to Arsenal and is hopeful a deal can be completed. Wenger has already revealed that he still has not given up on signing former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira, 33, from Inter Milan."
