Who can Arsenal turn to after missing out on Brazil wonderkid?
Real Madrid have officially beaten Arsenal to the signing of Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva, one of the most highly-rated youngsters in the world at the moment.
The 21-year-old would have been an ideal addition to Arsene Wenger’s squad, with the Gunners short of quality in that department this season.
Still, Arsenal have been linked with a number of other big names in that position, and here are five they must consider bringing in before the transfer window closes…
1) Sami Khedira (Real Madrid)
Long linked with a move to Arsenal and an ideal player to come in and improve their midfield, Sami Khedira’s time at Real is surely up as Silva arrives as his replacement.
