Emery’s at the wheel, that’s how the saying goes right? Now that Arsenal have progressed into the Europa League quarter-final and find themselves in third place in the league, fans are ecstatic. Finally, the Spaniard is looking more and more like the right appointment in the post-Arsene Wenger era, despite it coming as a relative shock.
Still, they can’t get too excited just yet. With seven league games still to play, Arsenal have to maintain their focus and a level of professionalism about their game, or else, their good fortune could quickly come tumbling down. As every Gunner fan reading this know, their club really do like to make things difficult.
So, having Champions League football back at the Emirates will be the statement Unai Emery needs to recruit some more talented players. And although other positions may take initial priority, another winger must quickly be sourced to add to Arsenal’s firepower up-top.
One youngster they have considered signing before – according to Football.Live NG – is Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze and rekindling interest for the 19-year-old wouldn’t be a bad idea at all.
Chukwueze, (who is valued at £9 million on Transfermarkt) is a dynamic player who has gone a long way to showing off his endless ability this season, despite his sides low La Liga position. Whilst the Yellow Submarine are currently putting up a real fight against relegation, Chukwueze has scored nine goals and created a further four assists, playing his part in trying to keep his team afloat in the league.
Indeed, Chukwueze made his debut for Nigeria at the end of last year as he continues his growth in the game, so would certainly fit into an Arsenal project really trying to grow into the next phase.
Whether he is soaring up and down the wing, putting balls into the box or producing a goal-bound effort himself, Chukwueze looks to be a winger full of quality and one that Arsenal cannot pass the opportunity of signing once again. Alongside their current flurry of attackers, he could become something great.
Do you agree Arsenal should sign Chukwueze? If not, why not? Join the discussion by commenting below…
