Arsenal hero Merson hoping Gunners can land West Ham midfielder Parker

Arsenal hero Paul Merson says West Ham United midfielder Scott Parker is the man to replace Cesc Fabregas.

Merson sees West Ham star Parker as the ideal replacement for want-away Fabregas.

And the former England hero ­Merson says 30-year-old Parker is the sort of ­mature talent who will help nurture Jack Wilshere into an international star.

Merson said: "Scott was the best midfielder in the country last year and Arsenal have got to buy players that are going to produce now - not in two or three years' time.

"He would slot in alongside Jack Wilshere straight away and really help Jack along."
