The transfer window has begun with clubs across Europe in full trot as they look to bring new signings ahead of next season.
Arsenal had a disappointing end to the season after failing to make top 4 and suffering a painful defeat to rivals Chelsea in the Europa League Final.
However, Arsenal Legend Ian Wright has identified the right player that can bring a winning mentality to the team. The legendary striker went on Twitter to urge his former club to sign AS Roma kingpin Daniele De Rossi.
Arsenal need to bring in De Rossi from Roma ! We’ll get 15 games out of him, it won’t cost hardly any money, and the experience he could pass on to the likes of Willock and the other youngsters could be invaluable and money well spent. ?

De Rossi is set to leave the Italian side this summer after the club refused to grant him a new contract. The 35-year-old is available on a free after spending 18 years at the club and Wright believes that he is the right player for the Gunners.
De Rossi during his prime was known as an excellent box-box midfielder capable of breaking opposition attacks and starting counterattacks.
He was also known to be a tough-tackler of the ball and capable of playing as a holding midfielder or in the defence.
His versatility and tenacity would give Arsenal a different dimension not seen since the time of Patrick Viera.
Even at the age of 35, De Rossi was one of the best performers for the Italian side this season displaying his tactical nous and experience during games.
Arsenal would make a mistake not signing the World Cup winner who has been linked with a move to Boca Juniors.
De Rossi made 616 appearances for Roma and made his debut for the club in 2001.
