Arsenal Makes Bid for Blackburn Defender Samba, Daily Mail Says

May 28 (Bloomberg) -- Arsenal had made an 8 million-pound ($13 million) bid for Blackburn defender Chris Samba, the Daily Mail said.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has put a dominant center-back at the top of his transfer list after the Gunners went a sixth straight season without a trophy.

Samba, 27, said earlier this month he came close to leaving Blackburn during the January transfer period.

“Everybody knows that I am an ambitious player,” the Mail quoted Samba as saying. “I think a move to Arsenal was very close in January but that is life.”
