Why Arsenal Signing James Milner Could Be A Brilliant Bargain

It's been a long time since a thick-necked kid by the name of James burst onto the Premier League scene with a goal for Leeds as a 16-year-old.

Unfairly treated thanks to his knack of being able to play any and everywhere with equal verve and skill, the Man City man's time at the Etihad looks to be coming to an end - and there's more than a few suitors.

Liverpool's name has been mooted but it's the recent rumours of Arsene Wenger's interest - according to the Telegraph - that's really piqued ours.

Able to play on either flank - as a winger or full-back - as well as in the middle, Milner would be a fantastic option to plug gaps left by Arsenal's notoriously rubbish medical team.

He's one of the few adept at crossing on the run with accuracy, he's also decent in the tackle and extremely capable at passing, where his range could really come into play with a team as expansive as Arsenal.

While his name seems to have cooled on the backpages, that could mean a fantastic time to strike with his contract running out in the summer.

Have that, Arsene.
