Arsenal should sign Gareth Bale says Adrian Durham

Daily Mail columnist Adrian Durham believes Arsenal should sign Gareth Bale to elevate them from Champions League contenders to title winners. 

Durham believe the Welsh wizard is the answer to Arsenal's prayers and the missing piece to the current jigsaw. 

Bale to Arsenal is a transfer that is highly unlikely but financially Arsenal should be able to do it.  Durham believes Bale's direct approach is reminiscent of Thierry Henry when he was at his peak at Arsenal. 

Since joining Real Madrid from Arsenal's bitter rivals, Tottenham in 2013, Bale has won the UEFA Champions League, Copa Del Rey and Club World Cup. He scored 22 goals in his first season at the Bernabeau. It's safe to say he's been hugely successful at arguably the biggest club in the world. 

Whether the 25-year-old is currently happy at the Madrid is in question. Rumours of a rift with fans favourite, Cristiano Ronaldo, have thrown his future into doubt. 

Ronaldo is said to be annoyed with Bale for being "too greedy" and not passing the ball enough.  Manchester United have been linked with big money move for Bale. They reportedly submitted a bid in the summer of 2013 when David Moyes was in charge. 

Louis Van Gaal is looking to break the bank next summer to land the league title. This echoes the point that Durham is making about Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger hasn't been shy of spending big in recent windows. He signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona for £35m last summer and Mesut Ozil for £42m from Real Madrid in 2013. Both high profile players coming from high profile clubs.

One may not quite have worked out as they planned but it proves the Gunners boss is serious about making Arsenal title winners again.  The ultimate question is would Gareth Bale make Arsenal title winners? Winners no, but contenders yes. 

The reason for that is the fact that Bale can't play in defensive midfield, or centre back for that matter.

It's clear Arsenal are lacking a commanding defender and solid protection in front of their back four. Once they sort that out, should Bale or a similar player to him arrive at the Emirates, Arsenal will certainly win the Premier League. 

Finally, would Bale actually go to The Emirates? He is still regarded as a hero amongst Tottenham fans. He said he still loves and highly respect the club. Would Bale have it in his heart of hearts to do that to the Tottenham fans?
