Arsenal should move for Leicester duo Wilfred Ndidi and Caglar Soyuncu in January if they’re to give themselves the best possible chance of a top-four finish in the second half of the season.
That’s according to Arsenal hero Perry Groves, who thinks the pair are just what the Gunners need to strengthen their under-performing squad.
Leicester City currently sit second in the table, ten points adrift of league leaders Liverpool who have a game in hand.
While it remains unlikely they can chase down the table-topping Reds, Brendan Rodgers’ side have enchanted everybody this term as English football’s surprise package.
Groves is of the opinion that Arsenal need a centre-back and holding midfielder in order to improve, touting both Soyuncu and Ndidi as the ideal players to lift spirits.
“The thing is, it’s very, very difficult to get players you want in January because teams don’t want to let them go,” Groves told Express Sport.
“Plus if they do it’s going to cost you a hell of a lot of money.
“If you looked at Soyuncu and Ndidi at Leicester and you put those two in Arsenal’s team, that would improve their team significantly.
“They’re two positions that everybody knows that Arsenal have been crying out for. “So, how much it would take to prise them away from Leicester, I don’t know.
“The thing with Leicester is they don’t need the money.
“Unless somebody goes to them and says I want to leave, it won’t happen.
“You only have to look at Harry Maguire, they could hold out for up to £70million until he said to them ‘It’s time I moved on’.
“With these middle teams now, big teams can’t bully them now financially.
“So if you said Soyuncu and Ndidi then they would be brilliant signings.
“Leicester’s recruitment has always been very, very good.”
Ndidi has been linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks, with reports claiming that the Gunners could make a player-plus-cash offer for the midfielder.
