    Apart from a few Champions League matches I haven't watched him this season, but he is a complete defender, physique is impressive, good pace, technique and passing. He still seems to have the occasional lapse of concentration during games though.

    I'm not sure it should be van Dijk but it wouldn't hurt to add a young central defender to our squad since our youngest CB is 28.

    Better than Ginter?

    Only see him in Europe, but Van Djik looks a decent young player. Now, do I want him if he is replacing Vermaelen? No, as another squad option with a plan for the future? Yes, we need a good young CB.

    I think Vermaelen is off btw, keeping his mouth shut atm, but I feel he'll ask to move on when the time is right.

    I am a regular follower of Celtic and have to say he does have the quality to make it, not sure if he is for us at the minute. He is playing in a much inferior Celtic team compared to last season but has really stood out as their best player by some distance both in Europe and in the SPFL. Very talented, very young, and his missus (google here) would be number one on the Arsenal changing room wall.

    He is no Victor Wanyama though who would and still remains a much better fit for us - look at how Southampton are doing without him at present.

    No idea how good this fella is but a young centre back really needs to be a priority in the next transfer window, unless Wenger is banking on Miquel to be good enough for first choice eventually.
