Roberto Firmino

Another answer to the midfield question, Firmino is impressing in the Bundesliga and the Brazilian National Team has him up against Coutinho and Oscar for the starting attacking midfield role.

Reportedly (the Metro), Arsenal’s chief scout Steve Rowley has been scouting the midfield stand-out, and it’s easy to see why.

He’s netted six times and assisted seven, and as you can see, his versatility across the pitch will appeal to Wenger. He has adequate height to be an aerial threat, the vision to be a distributor and a strong enough foot to score from distance.

And as we know, all players seek the Premier League at some point in their careers, so spending 20 million on the 23-year old Brazilian now would be a worthy endeavor.

Currently resiging at 1899 Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, Firmino would find the allure of Champions League football quite appealing.
