Watford's captain Troy Deeney has been linked with a shock £20m move to Premier league leaders Arsenal. The 27-year-old has been in fine form this season, scoring six goals in his last 11 league games.

The Daily Star have reported that Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is a fan of the striker, and the Gunners remain short up front, with competition needed for Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud.

Wenger has said that he is looking to sign two players in this transfer window, the other being Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny, who will reportedly undergo a medical ahead of his £7.4m move today.

Jack Wilshere has, however, fuelled exit talk by putting his £3.7m Hertfordshire mansion up for sale. Wilshere, 24, has not played this season after fracturing his leg before the start of the campaign. 

The Sun have reported that Wilshere, who has been constantly linked with a move to Manchester City, is not seeking a new propery in area. The midfielder has two years left on his contract with the Gunners.


Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy, meanwhile, is wanted by Aston Villa.

The Frenchman has spoken of his frustration at his lack of playing time at the club, and is a target for relegation-threatened side on loan for the rest of the season.

Villa are managed by former Gunner Remi Garde, Wenger's first Arsenal signing back in 1996.
