Arsenal 'chase Frey'
Parma goalkeeper Sebastien Frey
Frey claims interest from Arsenal
Arsenal have been linked with a 7m move for cash-strapped Parma's French goalkeeper Sebastien Frey.

Sources in France claimed a Highbury delegation were locked in talks with Parma to finalise a deal.

Chelsea have also been linked, but Frey claimed: "I won't have any trouble with the language. I have already spoken to Arsene Wenger, he's waiting for me.

"I feel good in Italy, but I can't stay as it would be bad for Parma, who need money and soon."

He said: "My value is between 10m and 12m Euros. This solution is good for me."

The reports brought a bemused repsonse from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

"He said that he has had me on the phone telling him that I want him to come here," Wenger said.

"I can tell you that I've never spoken to him. Maybe there is someone in this world who can imitate my voice and has my cheque-book as he buys players every day."
