PIERS MORGAN has told Arsenal to sign one of the Netherlands' star players after he impressed in their World Cup win over USA.

Louis van Gaal's side were 3-1 winners as they made it to the quarter-finals and one man caught the eye of the Gunners fan.


Memphis Depay netted the opening goal of the game and Morgan believes he could be a good January signing and be the perfect partner to Gabriel Jesus.

He took to Twitter saying: "Arsenal should sign Memphis in January. Such a good player and would work well up front with Jesus."

There is a possibility that Depay, 28, could be open to the move with his game time at Barcelona restricted.

He has featured just three times this season scoring one goal for the Catalan giants having seen his minutes on the pitch drop since the arrival of Robert Lewandowski.

Arsenal suffer HUGE blow as Gabriel Jesus is OUT with an injury

He has also been battling injury.

The attacker's deal expires at the end of this campaign and Barca could look to cash in before losing him for free.

Amid their financial problems, Depay was nearly forced out the club with Barcelona stripping him of his No.9 shirt and giving it to Lewandowski.

They even considered ripping up his contract.

He was close to leaving over the summer but a transfer did not materialise.

He was linked with Juventus, Tottenham and Chelsea.
