Welcome to Arsenal Central Midfield!

That's what we should be saying to a new defensive midfielder soon, if the papers are to be believed.

Former Arsenal striker and ESPN pundit Paul Mariner reckons we're wasting our time thinking about the injury-prone Khedira, when we could get Carvalho instead. Marina saw Carvalho in a recent international friendly and was impressed with what he saw.

Other speculation has linked us with former midfield enforcer Vieira, returning in a non-playing capacity, of course. I'm loath to jump to that conclusion, just because he's spending a lot of money on rebuilding his Hampstead home.

Finally, an attacking midfielder who has actually signed is already making his mark. Congratulations to Dan Crowley, who scored his first Arsenal goal as Steve Gatting's U21s defeated Forest Green Rovers 6-4 away from home.
