Arsenal are currently in the middle of what would have to be considered an impressive season under Unai Emery, however, that should not take the distractions away from the fact that improvements are still needed at the Emirates Stadium.
The wing options at the club are in serious need of reinforcements at the Gunners and it appears the north London outfit have been looking at an extremely talented prospect constantly.
What’s the News?
According to a report by FC Inter News, Arsenal are thought to be interested in signing PSV Eindhoven’s Steven Bergwijn.
It is claimed that the Gunners have been constantly looking at the Dutch international, although it is said Manchester United are also keeping tabs on the impressive 21-year-0ld.
Bergwijn has been nothing short of outstanding for PSV this season. He has scored 12 goals and provided his team-mates with 12 assists in his 28 Eredivisie appearances so far and looks an incredibly bright talent.
The 21-year-old has a remarkable ability with the ball, where he can run with it at pace at opposition defences and has an eye for a killer pass.
Despite being extremely versatile in the final third of the pitch, the Dutchman’s pace and agility mean he operates a lot better on the flanks and can make space for his team-mates with his ability of dragging his markers out of position.
Not just exceptional at going forward, he is more than capable of tracking back and can make tackles when needed, which could be beneficial in the system Emery adopts at Arsenal.
The Emirates Stadium outfit currently lack options and quality when it comes to their wide areas, meaning Bergwijn could thrive and play a key role for the Gunners.
Alex Iwobi has rarely impressed when given the opportunity, whilst the left-hand side of the pitch has looked vulnerable at times with the likes of Sead Kolasniac struggling at times to make an impact.
