Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly interested in signing Blackburn defender Phil Jones in a £10million deal.

The News of the World claim Wenger’s chief scout, Steve Rowley, was sent to Ewood Park on Saturday to monitor the 19-year-old’s performance against Bolton.

With doubts surrounding Gary Cahill potential move to the Emirates, Jones is reportedly an alternative for Wenger.

Jones, who has only just returned to action for Rovers, after suffering a cartilage injury, can also play in a defensive-midfield role but is currently covering at centre-back due to the injury to Ryan Nelsen.
