Yes Khedira is a proven world beater but that is not the player Arsenal needs. Arsenal needs a pure holding midfielder. Remember most of the goals scored last season came as a result of losing the ball while attacking the opponent. Arsenal needs somebody who can intercept and stop the opponents’ counter attacks.
Khedira is talented but his statistics prove otherwise compared to what Arsenal needs. He has never averaged more than two tackles in a game in any season. Arsenal needs a traditional defensive midfielder. Somebody who is faster than Arteta and less prone to surge forward in search of goals (remember Song?).
William Carvalho or Morgan Schneiderlin fits the description.
Fellow Gooners, lets wait and see who Wenger will buy.
