Should Arsenal Target Jason Denayer?

Jason Denayer isn't that well known in England, despite being on Manchester City's books since 2013. He has yet to play a competitive fixture for the club, but two loan spells have seen his star rise across Europe.

O Captain, My Captain! Lack of characters in the Premier League

With the imminent move of Chelsea captain John Terry at the end of the season, the Premier League is characterised by a lack of stand out captains.
