MEDIA reports suggest that Arsenal having missed out on several targets during the transfer window could make a move for long-term West Hammers target Stephen Appiah.

The midfielder, who is a free agent after agreeing his release from Fenerbahce has been heavily linked with a move to Upton Park, although following Alan Curbishley's departure the Irons may no longer be in the running for him.

And according to reports in Italy the former Juventus man may appeal to Arsene Wenger as he looks to strengthen his squad.

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has also been linked with a move for the 27-year-old, who has stated that he would love to play in the Premier League.

"There are contacts, there are talks - I can't say anything yet," he told "I am not going to put people off, my agents are talking so I have nothing else to say.

"My dream is to play in the Premier League and with the help of God, I will realise that dream."
