Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is preparing a £10million bid for Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue.

Wenger had been tracking Yann M’Vila but has been forced to come up with a plan B due to the £25m price tag on the Rennes star and confirmed interest from big-spending Manchester City.

Capoue, 23, joined Toulouse on a youth contract in 2005 after the club beat Lille, Auxerre and Bordeaux to his signature.

He made his full debut at the end of 2007 and his current contract runs until 2014.

Lazio have been keeping a close eye on 6ft 2in Capoue and Barcelona had him on a list of alternatives during their long pursuit of former Gunners skipper Cesc Fabregas.

Capoue, with three goals to his name this season, plays as a defensive midfielder but is also comfortable at the back.

He has represented France up to Under 21 level.
