According to The Express, Arsenal are ready to spend £30million on Jao Moutinho who was reportedly chased by Man United last summer. There are suggestions that Arsenal are looking to replace Mikel Arteta in midfield and Moutinho's ability to control and dictate the game would certainly fill the aging Spaniard's boots.

However, fans will no doubt have their reservations about the Portuguese midfielder as he isn't exactly young at 28-years-old. Another reason many people may question such an acquisition is Moutinho's lack of physical presence which is something Arsenal severely lack. The nature of the Premier League is such that in order to dominate a game, teams tend to physically impose themselves upon their opposition. So for all his technical ability, is Moutinho really what Arsenal need?
