The one Group H player Arsenal should sign after the World Cup

Emirates Inside

The World Cup group stage is over, and many players have caught the eye with their impressive displays ahead of the transfer window.

Group H was seen as one of the more dour groups at the World Cup before the tournament, but the surprise performances of Algeria made it far more interesting than expected. Belgium ran out group winners as anticipated, but were far less impressive that people thought they would be. Meanwhile, Russia and South Korea both limped out of the tournament without much of a whimper in hugely disappointing tournaments for both sides.

There were a number of players who performed brilliantly in Group H, with many of them coming from Algeria, including goalkeeper Rais M'Bolhi, midfielder Yacine Brahimi and striker Islam Slimani – and Arsenal should be looking to swoop for their best player.

The Gunners are in need of help in the attacking third having struggled to break teams down at times last season. They often had a lack of pace without Theo Walcott in the side, and with Santi Cazorla strongly linked with a move back to Spain with La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, manager Arsene Wenger should surely be looking to snap up another wide man.

The name near the top of his shopping list should be Algeria's Sofiane Feghouli, who was the attacking heartbeat of Vahid Halihodzic's side in Brazil. With a goal against Belgium and two assists to his name, the 24-year-old made himself a household name over the past three weeks with some superb displays.

It's unlikely that Valencia will be under pressure to sell their star winger, but recent speculation in Algeria suggested that Arsenal had lined up Feghouli as a potential transfer target. With pace, skill and energy, the former Grenoble youngster would be the perfect player to inject some life to the Arsenal attack. Feghouli has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium throughout his career, but after his outstanding performances at the World Cup, now could be the right time to finally make the switch to North London.
