Arsenal should sign Stones - Barton

QPR midfielder Joey Barton believes Arsenal should sign Everton defender John Stones because he would fit the Gunners' playing style.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2 Extra, Barton said Arsenal lack a "spine" to their team, and believes Stones is an "exceptional player" who would benefit Arsene Wenger's side.

Stones, who was on the stand-by list for England's World Cup squad, is contracted to Everton until 2019.
