Arsenal Linked With Jack Rodwell And Sylvain Distin

Arsene Wenger saw his side dumped out of the Champions League last night after another poor defensive display and it now appears he is keen to add to his defence with Everton centre backs Jack Rodwell and Distin being linked with summer move to Arsenal.

The Everton pair have performed well this season and Jack Rodwell is being tipped for great things for the future after emerging from the Everton youth team.

Distin has recovered his form at Everton after failing to shine at Spurs and Portsmouth. He would be easily swayed to switch to Arsenal as Wenger looks to add another Frenchman to his squad.

David Moyes is keen to keep Distin at the club and will offer the defender a new contract come the summer.

‘It is something we will look at in the summer,’ Moyes said.

‘Sylvain has been great for us and the change after Joleon Lescott left has been relatively seamless.

‘He’s played all the games, trains all the time and that is a big thing. He takes a lot of pride in that and rightly so.’
