matches. Many believe that this decision has proven to be wrong as the team lacks creativity in their attacking midfield area.

Gilberto Silva

who was a member of the Gunners’ ‘invincible’ team believes that Arteta’s team need another player with similar qualities to Ozil for their midfield.

“If we want to talk about Mesut Ozil, then he's actually the kind of playmaker that Arsenal really need.” The Brazilian told 


“I thought that player might have been Willian when he was brought in but he's been playing out wide.

“Ozil could be the type of player Arsenal actually need to sign.”

Asked about a possible transfer target for the Gunners, Silva responded:

“I like Jack


. I've spoken about him a lot. He has done an amazing job; he'd be a good fit for the team.

“If you see the way he plays, his ability and desire. He's got quality, there is no doubt about that. He has been sensational this season.

“Good players are not cheap; this is the reality of football, but they make a huge impact.

“If the club decided in the future that they wanted to bring in a Jack Grealish, then they know it's not going to be cheap. They'll have to spend big.

“It's not easy to find quality players at a good price; you have to understand the market very well and be at the front of a long list of many, many clubs who are all looking for similar players to improve their squads.”
