the club are interested in signing Schalke’s Lewis Holtby.

The 22-year-old’s contract at the Bundesliga club expires in the summer and is set to leave Germany for the Premier League, with Spurs also believed to be keen on the German international.

Liverpool and Everton have also been linked to Holtby but it seems The Gunners are the frontrunners for his signature after Wenger sent scouts to watch him in action this season.

Quoted on, Wenger said:

‘We have looked at Holtby, yes.’

‘We have played against him, and our scouts are kept on alert and the quality of our scouting is linked with that.’

But would Holtby be a good signing for Arsenal? I believe so.

The German has great technique, skill and ability, and I think he would suit our style of play perfectly. Plus, he would be joining us for nothing. Can’t really go wrong.

I believe he would flourish under the guidance of Wenger, providing of course the Frenchman plays him in his correct position.

Now all we need is a strong, mobile holding midfielder to come in and add some solidarity to our side.
