Arsenal fans will certainly be pleased with what they’ve witnessed in recent times at the Emirates, but one of the biggest pains for many fans right now will be the fact that their side somehow failed to secure derby day delight in the dying embers at Wembley Stadium.
It’s safe to say that the Gunners could do with bringing in attacking reinforcements in the summer as they’re currently short on quality and numbers out wide, so Under may be the perfect man to fill the void.
Mesut Ozil has been rather impressive in recent times for the Gunners after seemingly being pushed towards a January transfer window exit, with his future at the Emirates now very much secure. But, it’s safe to say that he still hasn’t reached his full potential, which could be down to not having an attacking partner in the final third.
Indeed, Alexis Sanchez and Ozil formed a memorable partnership at the Emirates, which brought about plenty of success and excitement as the German would always have an attacking outlet and the Chilean often created space for him to work in, as well as making runs in behind to give Ozil a chance to display his world-class passing ability.
Cengiz Under may just be the new perfect partner for the 30-year-old as he’s very similar to Alex Sanchez in many ways, as he loves to drive into space and gives quick one-two passes. He also possesses the ability to drag defenders towards him with his pace and dribbling ability, which would inevitably create more space for Ozil. And, the Turkey international can pick a pass himself and knows how to find the back of the net, with six goals and nine assists to his name this season, so he could also help develop Ozil’s attacking game by providing him with a number of chances.
