Former Tottenham player, Jamie Redknapp believes that Arsenal’s north London rivals stole a march on the Gunners by snapping up Scott Parker for a mere £5m.
He told Sky Sports: “We were all looking at Arsenal to see what Arsene Wenger will do and in Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun he has got players that know the Premier League.
“It doesn’t surprise me at all that he didn’t buy English because he just doesn’t fancy them or see any value in them and although he’s signed a couple of young ones, it just isn’t his thing, is it?
“I actually thought they were crying out for a bit of ‘Britishness’. I really thought they needed someone like Scott Parker and in that respect I still don’t think they have sorted out a problem that was crying out to be fixed: they still don’t have someone to sit in front of that back four.
“Maybe Wenger thinks Alex Song and Abou Diaby can do the job and maybe he doesn’t want to stifle the development of Emmanuel Frimpong, but Parker would’ve been perfect.”
