Blaise Matuidi: A fit for Arsenal?

Ex-France striker Christophe Dugarry believes that PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi would be a perfect fit for Arsenal.

Matuidi’s contract expires in 2018 and he has been strongly linked with a move away from Ligue 1, with English and Italian clubs linked.

Speaking on French television, former Birmingham man Dugarry said: “I put him at Arsenal. He has the intensity, the style.”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.”

Matuidi was unhappy about his exclusion from the starting XI as Paris Saint Germain won the Coupe de la Ligue final against Monaco.
