Christophe Dugarry has expressed his belief that Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi would fit in well at Arsenal.

The French midfielder has regularly been linked with a move away from Ligue 1 to the Premier League, with Manchester United rumoured to have made an approach last summer.

PSG coach Unai Emery persuaded Matuidi to stay at the club, but he has yet to sign the new contract offered to him at the start of the campaign.


"I put him at Arsenal. He has the intensity, the style," Dugarry told RMC - via Le10Sport. "He's going to dominate all those that play with two in the middle of the field. I would take him to a club like that."

It remains to be seen whether Arsenal will be targeting a new midfielder in the summer transfer window, although the likes of Francis Coquelin and Granit Xhaka have come under criticism.

​The latter signed for the Gunners for £35m last summer, but has seemingly struggled to adapt to the Premier League since his arrival.

Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere is on loan at Bournemouth, with his future at Arsenal uncertain, while Aaron Ramsey has struggled with injury. Santi Cazorla, who has been absent through injury since October, has proved a big loss in midfield.

The concerns in the position could encourage Arsenal to make a move for Matuidi, whose future at PSG is growing increasingly doubtful.
