Ray Parlour believes Arsenal should make an ambitious attempt to sign £50m-rated midfielder Dele Alli from North London rivals Tottenham.
He told talkSPORT: “I think he’d be more of a fit than Jorginho, if I’m being honest, and I’ve always said they’re lacking goals from midfield.
“But I don’t think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal. I think there would be uproar by the Spurs fans if that happened. But he would certainly be a good fit for Arsenal.”
