Arsenal are hot on the trail of Marseille left-back Taye Taiwo – as they prepare for the possible departure of Gael Clichy.

Clichy is refusing to discuss a new deal and there are fears at the Emirates that he aims to run down his contract and leave for nothing in the summer of 2012.

Boss Arsene Wenger is searching for potential replacements and Nigeria inter­national Taiwo, 25, is top of his list.

Taiwo will leave Marseille on a free this summer – and it is believed that Arsenal have made contact with the player.

He is a free-kick specialist with an excellent goals record. Marseille boss Didier Deschamps is resigned to losing him to a club in England or Spain.

Taiwo has also been targeted by Real Madrid chief Jose Mourinho, who has shown interest in Clichy.
