Not Khedira: 5 Defensive Midfielders Arsenal Could Sign To Replace Arteta


1. Morgan Schneiderlin

Morgan Schneiderlin is a very experienced player and has featured for his country at nearly every level and has been selected for the France squad in the 2014 world cup. He has made over 200 appearances for Southampton, scoring just 10 goals. The 24 year old may look to follow his former team mates away from St Marys and there is many premier league clubs and clubs from abroad looking at the holding midfielder.

Arsene Wenger is currently out in Brazil, apparently keeping a close eye on the two French players, Schneiderlin and Debuchy. He is out there to see if the Southampton player can make that extra step up and cope with world class players and so far he has not put a foot wrong. Southampton has rated the player at £15-£20 million, which is a lot cheaper than the other defensive midfielders that we have been linked with. And saving money could be crucial as we can look to spend more of the cash on a few quality strikers. Use the page numbers below to navigate through the rest of the article.
