The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was keen on defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila but following interest from the likes of Manchester City and M’Vila’s price tag of £25m he has simply been priced out of being able to acquire his top target.
Capoue is a 6ft 2in player that predominantly plays as a defensive midfielder but can also play as part of the back four and has scored 3 goals in 11 games this season.
The Frenchman is currently out of action for a month following a head injury he sustained in training.
To be honest, I feel the need for a defensive midfielder is not that crucial. With Song in good consistent form this season and Coquelin a willing and able replacement if Song were to get suspended or injured there is no real need for another player in this position. What do you guys think? Do we need another defensive midfielder? Feel free to leave a comment below!
