Mikel Arteta encouraged to complete the £43M Arsenal signing of Xhaka replacement


Gunners icon Ray Parlour has admitted that he wants Arsenal to sign Ajax star Lisandro Martinez this summer transfer window

Lisandro has become a player that Arsenal fans have seen on a daily basis – as it seems that Mikel Arteta has made him the next summer signing after they completed a deal for Gabriel Jesus

Lisando is also being tracked by Man United – but it is believed that Ajax will allow him to leave the club should that £43 million valuation be met – something that the Gunners are trying to do

Now – amid all the speculation and rumours – Parlour has opened up and admitted that he wants Arsenal to sign the Ajax star this summer – He said to talkSPORT: “I know they are in for him from Ajax. I am looking down the spine of the team and I think that’s where they might strengthen.

“As you mentioned, Tielemans is a really good ball-player. They have got Partey, who had his injury problems last season.

“He missed quite a lot of games. You have got Lokonga, who is going to get better and he’s still young.

“But I think that’s the area. Xhaka is getting that little bit older. I think that’s the area they really need to look at.

“Get balls through the line and Tielemans would be ideal. Let’s hope, with my Arsenal hat on, they can somehow get him over the line, and in the ideal world, get everyone signed up by the pre-season tour.”

The business that Arsenal have done has been decent – but not impressive and the players that they are signing have too many questions surrounding them

Lisandro is a very good player that is ready for that next step – he is a player that Arteta likes and that is why the Spaniard will try everything to get a deal done
