Former Arsenal midfielder Fabrice Muamba has urged Arsene Wenger to do everything possible to sign Paris Saint Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
Matuidi has established himself as one of Ligue 1 best midfielders in recent years and Muamba believes he will be the signing to take Arsenal to the level.
Although Arsenal boast a large number of midfielders, Muamba doesn’t think the quality is good enough to succeed at the top level, hence the reason for his call to sign Matuidi.
“Sometimes you have to buy experience,” Muamba told the Daily Express.
“Arsenal really need to go out there and spend £30m and get the best central midfielder in Europe – in my view, Blaise Matuidi at PSG.
“Why hasn’t Arsenal signed somebody like that? You have to ask Arsene that.
“Everybody loves him and nobody who has been at the football club will speak against him.
“But some of those guys need to step up and repay his faith in them. It is time for them to deliver.”
Personally, I don’t know why many are still picking on our midfield as our problem but I don’t concur with that.
There is no doubt that Matuidi is a very quality player but I think the midfield is one of the best positions in our squad, so spending huge to improve that same position wouldn’t make sense when there are other positions like the right wing that needs reinforcements.
When everyone is fit, our midfield is definitely one of the best in the league but injuries have been our worst enemy. I think we should be concentrating on how to curb injuries than bringing in a new midfielder entirely.
Fellow Gooners, How about you? Do you see a need for Matuidi or any other midfielder?
