Forget Cavani, this is the man that Arsenal need to climb up the table

It’s clear that Arsenal need to get some more quality players in and, just like every transfer window, we’ve been linked with every name under the sun.

From goalkeepers to strikers to even a new manager recently, the rumours certainly never seem to stop.

We’ve had speculation about Edinson Cavani, talks of Yoann Gourcuff and Chinese whispers about the incoming Adrian Lopez.

However, one man who I feel is essential that we add this month is Marouane Fellaini.

For me, this boy has everything. He has the height, power and mean streak in him that will add some fight to our midfield (or attack if you like), and he is very skillful with the ball, can pick a pass, and is an absolute demon in the air.

He also headbutted Ryan Shawcross, so fair play to him.

Another thing I like about Fellaini is his versatility. While he has always been able to do a job sat in front of the back four, in recent years he has been operated in a more advance midfield role for Everton that displays his intelligence, skill and awareness to its full extent.

He can also play up top, which is a big plus, especially as we seem to be lacking in forwards at the moment and our problem is most definitely not solved when Gervinho comes back!

Put all this together and you get what could prove to be the buy of the transfer window, and he is still only 25 years old.

Yes we would face competition from a number of other clubs, with Manchester City and Chelsea supposedly interested in capturing the Belgian international, but we would certainly not be priced out of a move for him, with his current contract apparently containing a £22m buy-out clause.

Fellaini himself has also expressed his desire at making the jump to the next level and, despite the Toffees being higher than us in the table right now, he would certainly be doing that if we can cement a Champions League place.

Unlike many other top talents that we have been linked with, Fellaini would also be eligible to play in Europe this season which is a huge bonus.

And with Arsene Wenger reported to have launched a £30m bid for a player, we could definitely tempt cash-strapped Everton to let him go.

In short, Wenger sign Fellaini, thank you.

    Go on Arsene, sign some defensive steel!!! Mats Hummels & Yanga-M'Biwa to get our heads together at the back then Marouane Fellaini to add a bit of proven premiership quality going forward.

    And dont forget, we need more competition for places up front! We need a winner to get every ones head in the right place! Sign up David Villa!!!!

    Lets go on a run and turn things around, Go on Arsene you've only spent 20 million over the last 10 years, treat yourself!
