Sagna warns Arsenal of Tillmans
Bacary Sagna says Arsenal do not need a new midfielder.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Leicester midfielder Yuri Tillmans – but Sagna has asked Arteta to prioritize other positions.
“We’re talking about top players here, so of course they can make an impact on the team,” the former Arsenal defender told The Sun via Bet365.
“Is it necessary or not, that’s another question. I say the most important position is the striker.
Lacazette is nearing the end of his contract, Arsenal already have good midfielders and [Mohamed] Elneny who does really well.
“So, I’m not sure if they should cover more of their midfield position, we have [Thomas] Barty is also important.
“In my opinion, they should focus on signing a central defender and a striker. We have [Granit] Xhaka who can play from behind but this will be a temporary solution in case of injury or suspension.
“Signing a higher center back is something they need to do this summer transfer window.”
