Gunners join Chelsea and Liverpool in race for £12 million England ace

Arsenal are the latest club to join the race to sign Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry after Chelsea and Liverpool previously expressed an interest. (The People)

The Villa captain is widely regarded as one of the Premier League's top midfielders and it comes as no surprise to me to see all three sides interested in him.

Barry, 27, has eighteen caps for England failing to score once in the process. He has been at Villa for over a dozen years now and many people predict this will be his last season with the Midlands club.

Obviously Villa fans will be hoping Barry stays at Villa Park but I definitely think he will leave the club in the summer. He is a terrific player that I feel is very capable of playing in the Champions League.
