Arsenal will be hoping for a strong finish to the season as they look to secure a top four spot in the Premier League.
A fine midweek win sees the Gunners right in the mix for the all important Champions League spots, and manager Unai Emery will be quietly pleased with how he has gone about his work in his first season in the English game.
However, a lack of signings in January was a slight cause for concern for the Gunners boss and their fans, and we here in the Tavern feel some action in the summer is needed if Arsenal are to continue to grow under Emery and challenge for honours.
Indeed, one man we feel could well be a good signing is 22-year-old Spaniard Fabain Ruiz, who has been putting in some fine displays for Napoli this season over in Serie A.
Valued already at £40m by Transfermarkt, it’s clear the Spanish midfielder has a big future, and with the Gunners always seeming to struggle to fully compete in the middle of the park, Ruiz might be the perfect sort of signing.
Not a huge ball winning midfielder but more of a player who can sit in midfield and dictate games, he could well dovetail nicely with the likes of Xhaka or Torreira, and he’d certainly bring a new element of class to the midfield at the Emirates.
New signings are going to be needed anyway, and moving for somene like Ruiz would be a shrewd move all around based on his age and ability.
