According to the Birmingham Mail, West Bromwich Albion are exploring the possibility of signing Abou Diaby.
The France international was released by Arsene Wenger at the start of July after nine years at Arsenal and is currently looking for a club ahead of the new season.
The 29-year-old midfielder was recently linked with a move to MLS outfit FC Dallas and isn’t thought to be short of suitors despite his well documented injury problems.
Arsene Wenger recently revealed his sadness at the fact fitness problems – he’s made only 22 appearances in four years – have plagued Diaby’s career.
“I’m very sad because this boy is a massive and a huge talent,” he told Arsenal.com. “It’s sad as well because he didn’t deserve what he got.”
He added: “He was the closest to Patrick Vieira we have seen here, with even a good offensive potential. In France, he’s regarded highly because every time he played in the French national team he made a difference.”
Arseblog News obviously hopes Abou sorts a new gig soon…that being said, the prospect of him teaming up with Tony ‘capped grandad’ Pulis does have us raising one concerned eyebrow.
