Reports are out claiming that former Arsenal striker Charlie Nicholas has backed a move for Manchester United veteran Michael Carrick.
Nicholas has suggested Carrick could add the much-needed experience Arsenal’s midfield is currently lacking.
“The one key position is a holding midfield player,” he told Sky Sports.
“I don’t know why he wouldn’t go for anyone with Premier League experience.
“It makes sense for me to go for someone between the age of 30-32. There are a few about and if I was Arsenal I would go for Carrick.
“He’s not got the legs and pace but you need somebody with experience who has authority and gets the ball and passes it.
“I am not saying he would play every week but Carrick could teach as well as play. Someone has to teach these players how to play positions.”
