If Arsenal are looking for a new defensive midfielder this summer, they need look no further than Morten Hjulmand, currently at Lecce.

We say this not because the player is having a great year with the Serie A, which he is, but because he is an undisputed fan of the Gunners.

Not only that, but he has already received interest from the Premier League, as Southampton saw a bid rejected in January.

Gazzetta dello Sport look at how the player has improved over the past two and a half years, and come to the conclusion that he ‘in all likelihood, will leave this summer’.

Regarding his fanaticism for Arsenal, they point out that he had ‘Vieira’s poster in his room as a child’, and just like the current Crystal Palace manager, he ‘raises a dam in front of the defence’.

Seeing as Lecce allegedly turned down €13m from the St Mary’s side in the past transfer window, they believe the midfielder is ‘worth at least €20m’.

Other clubs, such as Atalanta and Borussia Dortmund, are lurking around him, but ‘his preferences are no mystery’ as to what his next step would be.

You guess it, it’s Arsenal, and he has their badge ‘tattooed on his left shoulder’.
