Former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson has revealed that manager Unai Emery doesn’t need to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl.
The Germany midfielder, who is currently struggling for game time at Dortmund, is said to be Emery target in January or next summer transfer window.
Meanwhile, ESPN presenter Mark Donaldson believes Weigl is a good defensive midfielder and could be a replacement option for Aaron Ramsey.
Ramsey is set to leave the Emirates side for free transfer with his contract set to expire at the end of this season.
“He’s a good defensive midfielder, Julian Weigl,” Donaldson said.
“Do Arsenal need him to maybe play alongside Torreira to replace Ramsey?”

ESPN FC pundit Robson replied to Donaldson: “Well Ramsey’s not getting in the side.”
“So they’ve got [Granit] Xhaka, they’ve got Guendouzi as well, they’ve got Torreira as you said. Weigl is a good player.”
“At the moment, I don’t think Arsenal need him. So I’m going to have that as a miss.”
Weigl, 23, who has been linked with Arsenal move this week, has only made three Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund this season.
The German midfielder joined the BVB from 1860 Munich in 2015 when he was just 19 and has since made 126 appearances.
