Babel linked with move to Emirates

Liverpool winger Ryan Babel could be on his way to Arsenal.

The People says Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is offering bad boy Babel to Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger in a shock deadline-beating deal.

The Kop chief needs Babel to leave to give him funds for his top target Kenwyne Jones at Sunderland - and he is negotiating with Wenger about a buy or an exchange.

Babel has already snubbed a straight swap with Sunderland and is turning his nose up at Birmingham, but he would be keen on a dream move to the Emirates.

Benitez has asked Wenger if he can have cash for Babel, but the £11million asking price is too high.

However there is the option of a swap involving Spaniard Fran Merida. Merida is out of contract in the summer, so Arsenal could be willing to trade.
