Currently playing for Ligue 1 giants PSG, Matuidi has the strength and ferocity that Arsenal have been lacking for the past few years now.
The central midfielder has been a regular feature this year and has managed an impressive five goals, bearing in mind it is his defensive qualities that has made him such a sought after player.
Initially brought in by PSG as a replacement for the retiring Makelele, Matuidi has proven to be one of the most complete central midfielders around.
With some fans here in the Tavern describing him as a “fighter” due to his solid, no-nonsense defensive approach, he is not one to shy away from initiating or being involved on the other end of the field when attacking.
With these two signings, Arsenal would be expected to really mount a title challenge.
