Arsenal legend Ian Wright has nominated Donny van de Beek as a player his old club should move for.

The Dutch midfielder has endured a difficult first season with Manchester United.

Wright said on Keys & Gray: "Donny van de Beek, he's someone that I wish someone more like Arsenal could have taken.

"When you look at [Paul] Pogba, what he's doing, and you look at Bruno Fernandes – that is Donny van de Beek's position.

"So people are thinking they're going to see Van de Beek [sitting] with Pogba and Fernandes, but I don't think that's going to happen, because as much as he can play there, that's not his preferred position to play.

"Listen, Donny van de Beek will be a good player for Man United in time because he's a quality player. But is he what they need right now?"
