Read Arsenal recently ran a Duel on which central midfielder its readers would like to see Arsene Wenger (or whoever is at the helm in the summer) bring in during the next transfer window.

Despite possessing the likes of Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Mohamed Elneny, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla, as well as a host of other names, supporters have constantly called for another top star to be signed, in the ilk of Patrick Vieira – a player who can control and run a midfield on his own.

A number of options were considered, from the likes of Marco Verratti to William Carvalho – players who have been linked with the Gunners countless times to those big world beaters who would command somewhat of a world record fee.

Take a look through the slideshow below to find out who came out on top in a Duel of ‘which central midfielder should Arsenal sign?’
