Arsenal have been linked with a January move for PSG midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who is unsettled in Paris due to a lack of playing time.
The former Newcastle United midfielder would add Premier League experience to the Gunners midfield who are now set to miss German midfielder Mesut Ozil for 12 weeks after he suffered a knee ligament injury.
Cabaye spoke to L’Equipe and admitted that he may have to move away from the Ligue 1 champions if he does not play more minutes in the starting XI for Laurent Blanc’s side.
“You have to accept being a substitute, but I don’t resign myself to that. In training sessions, I have to give my best and show my desire to play.
“When I am on the pitch, I feel it is not perfect and that I often have to leave too soon. But I know the coach and staff have to make choices and I respect that.
“Have I spoken to Laurent Blanc? No. What do I tell him? I am 28 years old and not new to the job. But I am not satisfied with the situation.
“Am I completely happy? To be honest, no. It is a new situation for me, but I don’t complain. It is the first time I haven’t played regularly for my club.
“With the French team, if one day the national team coach decides to play me less because I don’t play often enough for my club, then I would need to take stock with my representatives.”
Cabaye also hinted that he would like a return to England.
“Do I sometimes miss England? Yes. Sometimes I think about it, but I immediately sweep that away because it would cause distraction.
“I am at the Parc des Princes and I need to find the right atmosphere.”
Wenger in the past has bought a number of French internationals and a move for Yohan Cabaye would see a proven Premier League performer adding more quality to the Arsenal midfield.
