And Owen Hargreaves believes that investing in a quality central midfielder will benefit Arsenal in the long run. On the Kelly and Wrighty Show, he stated:
“Interestingly, I think for Mikel and Edu, two central midfield players – I’d say that the weakest part of that team right now is probably there.“
“I think that is probably where – they have really good pieces of the puzzle – I think you can invest big on a guy there to carry you to take the next step.”
“I think they are really close but maybe one guy that can make a difference is that central midfield position.”
