Liam Brady: Arsenal have enough creative midfield players

Arsenal legend Laim Brady has suggested Arsene Wenger won't move to sign world class players in a key area of his squad.

Arsenal legend Liam Brady told talkSPORT why he can’t see the Gunners making a signing in a key area this summer.

Arsenal have been linked with moves for Juventus players Arturo Vidal (The Metro) and Paul Pogba (The Guardian) but Brady feels Arsene Wenger won’t be interested in adding players of their type to his current squad.

“I think we’ve got enough players in there – I think Petr Cech, if he’s available and maybe a defensive midfield player – I would like another defensive player in there – Maybe it’s just those two players – I don’t see us going for a striker who’s going to cost £40-50 million,” he said.

Vidal and Pogba are both superb players and individuals who would have an impact in an Arsenal shirt, but Wenger is a manager who will never make signings for the sake of doing so.

In terms of central midfielders who can control the pace of a game and players who can inject creativity into the side, he has those boxes ticked.

There is no need to bring someone in who can patrol that space in behind the striker because he already has Santi Cazorla and German World Cup winner Mesut Ozil.

As Brady suggests, there are definitely other areas of the squad which need to be improved moving forward.

If Wenger improves those positions, Arsenal will become an ever stronger proposition with regards to the title next season than they already are.

They have momentum from the back end of last season and the resources to go about making necessary improvements in the transfer market. There are no excuses.
