Arsenal legend David Seaman explained his main concern on talkSPORT yesterday if his old club move to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus.
Seaman was quizzed over whether the French midfielder would be a good signing for the Gunners, as they look for midfield reinforcements in the transfer market at the end of this season.
“I would think so (great fit for Arsenal) - He's something that Arsenal need - He'd be ideal, but I just wonder what the price tag would be on him,” said Seaman.
Reports over the past 12 months have suggested some big fees for any team looking to sign Pogba, with the Daily Telegraph recently suggesting it could take a £60 million offer from any team looking to snap him up.
That suggests that if Arsenal were serious about getting him, they would have to pay big for the privilege.
Arsene Wenger has shown in the last two summer transfer windows that he’s happy to spend big for key transfers with deals for Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez costing over £70 million accumulatively.
Arsenal’s financial position is solid, with Wenger previously criticised for the way he approaches the transfer market with a shrewd mentality.
There has been a need for Arsenal to sign an authoritative central midfielder for the last few years, but it’s a problem that Wenger has always patched up rather than addressing directly by signing a holding man.
The creative boxes are all ticked and there are plenty of good options at the top of the midfield in attack, but it will be interesting to see if the Arsenal boss drafts in a midfielder to play a bit deeper this summer.
