This ball winning midfielder would be the ideal summer signing for Arsenal

Arsenal have put together a superb run towards the end of the Premier League season meaning that they have taken the fight for the top four down to the final day of season.

The Gunners fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been up and down in terms of mood all season, but if they can secure an unlikely top four berth on the final day, then things will look far rosier for Arsene Wenger going into the summer.

Our landlord has been catching up with the Arsenal fans this week over by the pool table, and a lot of the talk has turned to this summer and who they might opt to sign in the transfer market.

One area the Gunners have lacked a bit of bite in over the last decade or so is centre midfield, and we think that Southampton man Oriel Romeu could be just the man they need to sign to plug that gap in the middle of the park.

Romeu has been a revelation for the Saints this season following a poor spell with Chelsea, and his name is being circulated and linked with many clubs. Arsenal are certainly a club who could use someone of his talents.

His ball winning ability and no nonsense style is something which the Gunners could well do with, and alongside Granit Xhaka, he could well provide Arsenal with a central pairing who would take some breaking down.

Arsenal fans, what do you think to this? Would you take Romeu? Let us know in the comments!
