ARSENE Wenger is ready to enter a bidding war with AC Milan to pit Yaya Toure alongside brother Kolo at Arsenal.

Boss Wenger is preparing a �12million bid for the Barcelona star but accepts he may have to improve on that following the midfielder's impressive Champions League performances against Chelsea and Manchester United.

As Yaya proved in Barca's European glory run, he could also play alongside Kolo, 28, in the centre of defence.

Yaya, 25, had a trial at Arsenal in 2005 but failed to seal a permanent move and joined Olympiacos instead.
