According to our colleagues at Eurosport, SC Bastia are in talks with Arsenal’s French defensive midfielder Mathieu Flamini about a possible move.
The report claims that talks have occurred between the two parties and while the idea is a little crazy, it is not unrealistic. The player is interested in a move to the Corsican outfit, but at the moment there is a huge financial discrepancy between what he is earning at Arsenal and what he is being offered by SCB.
Also, Bastia are technically, at the moment, relegated to Ligue 2 after a ruling by the French football financial watchdog the DNCG. While they are in the process of appealing this decision, there is no guarantee that they will be successful.
