Arsenal to make £4m bid for Defour

The talented midfielder is seen as one of the brightest youngsters in Europe.

The 20-year-old is also being linked with Lyon, Ajax, Palermo, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa.

Defour’s agent Paul Stefani said in October: “Lyon and Arsenal have scouted Steven. They both have decided to come back to see him in other matches.”

Defour’s contract with Liege expires in 2013.
