Okay, I’ve just done a post about Sepp Blatter and his idea to introduce a quota system into European football, whereby clubs could field no more than five foreigners. In the Prem, this would obviously mean that managers – yes, Arsene, that includes you – would have to sign loads more English players to ensure that they could actually name a legitimate starting XI.

Put yourself in the sensible shoes of Arsene Wenger, or indeed any Prem manager. Which one English player would be at the top of your shopping list?
