Former Arsenal striker Perry Groves says they should move for AS Monaco midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.
It is no secret that Arsene Wenger needs a solid unit in the centre of the park, and has been linked with some of the games biggest clubs.
However, Groves believes Kondogbia would be an excellent addition if they can lure him away from France.
As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “They need a centre half. They are short in that position.
“They also need a physically imposing holding midfield player as they have many technically gifted players going forward but they don’t have many players that think defensively.
“There’s a lad at Monaco called Geoffrey Kondogbia who is very similar to Patrick Vieira and he played at the Emirates Cup.
“Arsenal need someone who can help in the transition from defence to attack.
“It would take a lot of money to get him, but he’s physically imposing and he would be the perfect buy.”
