£70 million duo signings ‘will helps Arsenal close the gap’ Mikel Arteta has been told
Michael Thomas has claimed the signings of Achraf Hakimi and Yves Bissouma can help Mikel Arteta and Arsenal close the gap on the top clubs in the Premier League.
With the players that Arteta currently has at his disposal, there has been alot of praise for the Spanish boss since he took over the club just over 12 months ago and many believe that he is just a couple of signings away from competing for the top trophies once again.
Bissouma and Hakimi have been two players that have been linked with a move to the Emirates over the past couple of transfer windows, as constant reports have claimed that the Arsenal board are prepared to pay big money to get both players signed up.
WHAT DID THOMAS SAY?
“There are a few areas,” he said. “But it can all depend on the finish to the season and whether they qualify for Europe or not.
“I think a right-back is needed and I am liking the links with [Achraf] Hakimi at Inter. I saw him at Dortmund and thought this guy has an engine with some quality.
“Cover at left-back is essential. [Kieran] Tierney is fantastic and seems to only be getting better, but someone with experience who can still offer something, like [Ryan] Bertrand, would be good in there.
“[Yves] Bissouma of Brighton would be my pick for a partner to Thomas Partey in central midfield. Both are solid, can use the ball well and are 90-minute players.
“Finally, keep [Martin] Odegaard! He has great vision and works extremely well.”
The transfer window is just a few months away and it will be interesting to see what players Arsenal get, but do Gunners fans really believe the club will hand Arteta the funds to get both players all signed up?
