Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak would be perfectly suited to Arsenal, according to Spanish football expert Graham Hunter.
The Gunners have been linked with a £22m bid for the Poland international, who has helped Sevilla to back-to-back Europa League triumphs.
Hunter feels that Krychowiak is the right type of player that Arsenal should be pursuing, but doubts that his La Liga club would consider selling.
Hunter is quoted by Sky Sports as saying: “If Arsenal decide on this fierce, tough-tackling, clever, goal-scoring central-midfielder – who meets the criteria of what critics of Wenger have been saying Arsenal have needed for three four or five seasons – then yes, he would suit them.
“However, if they are to get him they will have to ram-raid Sevilla to convince them to part with him ahead of what is a Champions League season for the Andalusians.
“He’s the right player, but late timing coupled with a Sevilla side who are cash rich (could see him stay).”
Petr Cech is Arsenal’s only summer signing to date. The former Chelsea goalkeeper made a couple of errors as the Gunners lost 2-0 at home to West Ham United in their Premier League opener.
