Ideal Cesc Fabregas replacement? [video evidence]

Well it finally looks as if Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas are on their way out of the club we love. (For all you doom and gloomers that's Arsenal by the way.) Assuming that they do go, I think it will be for the best in the long run. If they had stayed, it would have destabilised the club, which would have been extremely detrimental to our chance of winning anything.

I don't think we will miss Nasri. He has been good in patches, but remains inconsistent. We already had Walcott and Arshaivin in the wide positions, and have now brought in Gervinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain, as well as finally obtaining a work permit for Miyaichi. So I think that will leave us covered on the wings.

Fabregas will be more difficult to replace. With his potential natural successor, Nasri, gone, that leaves a huge hole in the middle of the park. Ramsey does not yet look ready to take over the mantle of chief playmaker, Rosicky still does not appear to have rediscovered the form he was in prior to his long injury lay off, and judging from what we have seen in pre-season, Arsene Wenger has no intention of moving Arshavin to that position.

One possible option I would personally like Wenger to consider is dropping van Persie back to Fabregas' position and buying a quality striker, such as Falcao.

However, if you watch the video above, I think you will agree that I have found the ideal Cesc replacement. He's just the kind of player that Arsene would go for. He would inevitably need a few years to reach his full potential, but he's young and skillful, and would fit into the Arsenal style of play beautifully.
