Of all the players constantly linked with a move to the Emirates in recent months, this player is the one that most Gunners fans agree would be a very good move indeed.

Left out of the Euro 2008 action, Ben Arfa may well be the next member of the Lyon exodus (as keeper Coupet appears to have jumped Alain Perrin’s ship), as he may see a move away from Ligue 1 as the best way to maximise ambitions. After all, winning the French title can’t be quite so exciting for the fifth time and can’t exactly motivate a player! He clearly is a Wenger-style player – do Arsenal fans want him to join the club or are there others more worthy, like Samir Nasri for instance?
