The Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has been excellent for the highflying Southampton team, but he has been angling for move to a “bigger club” since the transfer window opened last summer, with Arsenal being strongly linked all the way through the transfer window.
All Gooners know that Arsenal need a new accomplished defensive midfielder, and with Schneiderlin’s Premier League experience he would be a great buy for Arsenal. The Gunners legend Ray Parlour totally agrees with this assessment. “Morgan Schneiderlin – I’d definitely sign him,” Parlour said in the Telegraph.
“He would be perfect for my old team Arsenal, absolutely, whether you can get him or not I don’t know because Southampton are in a very good position at the moment, they don’t want to let any of their players go at least until the end of the season.”
Schneiderlin yet again told the Saints that he was still looking for an exit from St. Marys, although he thinks it may be awkward during the winter window. He said. “It’s always difficult to leave in January,”
“I think I’ll finish the season at Southampton and we’ll see what will happen next. I don’t set my mind on these things anymore. What should happen will happen. Since this summer, I learned that you should never think that you’re gone before you actually did.”
Surely Southampton can’t keep an unhappy player for a second season in a row, so it must be certain that he will be moving on very soon. But will Arsene Wenger take Ray Parlour’s advice?
