Cesc Fabregas believes Arsene Wenger should consider a move for Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso.
Alonso has enjoyed an excellent season at Anfield but there has been continued speculation that he could leave the club this summer. Rafa Benitez dismissed such reports over the weekend after fresh stories regarding Alonso and a possible switch to Real Madrid.
Fabregas, however, admits he would love his Spanish compatriot to join him at Emirates Stadium next season.
“We have lost big players, but the boss knows what he is doing,” said Fabregas.
“The days of signing a new player aren’t finished.
“We need someone in the middle to make competition and make a difference, plus give us a new dimension.
“I think that is all we need. The rest is perfect.
“Xabi would be great. He’s experienced and can score goals. I’m sure the boss is aware of that fact.”
