The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been quick to think that if new boss Unai Emery is given sufficient funds this summer, the Gunners may find their glory days quicker to get back to than they think.
After the shock of Arsene Wenger actually leaving the club after 22 years, Arsenal are now in a difficult transition period which could either make or break Unai Emery as a manager. It’s been proven before, for example when David Moyes took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, that plans of succession don’t always go to plan.
If Arsenal are seriously hoping for Emery to have an instant impact though, they need to back him with big money to spend this summer and our punters would be keen for the club to identify Atletico Madrid start Angel Correa, who is valued at £21.6 million by Transfer Markt, as a player capable of improving their starting line-up.
Having played against him in the Europa League, the Gunners should be well aware of the qualities he possesses out on the wing. This season, Correa was a key man for the Europa League winners, having played in 56 games, scoring 9 goals as well as assisting 9 goals.
The 23-year-old can play anywhere across the frontline and would surely be an improvement on fringe players such as Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck. Typically like most Argentinian players, his dribbling ability is world-class as he can easily skip around defenders as if they weren’t even there.
Arsenal are lacking a cutting edge on the wings and seeing as Unai Emery likes to beat teams down the wing, Correa could be an influential man should Arsenal pursue his signature. When you add his name to the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it becomes a truly mouthwatering prospect.
