Scouting (part 2) by Dan Smith
After all 32 nations had played at the World Cup I asked for names who you might think could be a bargain signing for Arsenal, finding a gem while getting some value. My pick was Lozano after he destroyed Germany from the wing.
With match day 2 of the groups stages done it is now time to recommend another name. This time I’m sticking closer to home and saying Arsenal should register an interest in Rubén Loftus-Cheek.
I take into consideration he played well against very limited opposition but it is more his current situation which makes me think we wouldn’t lose anything by taking a gamble on him. If the rumours are true that Chelsea want to loan him out again, then we could get a replacement for Jack Wilseire without paying a transfer fee. With our limited budget these are the type of deals we need to be exploring.
Loftus-Cheek’s stock is high. There is no longer any reason for him to hang around Stamford Bridge waiting for a chance. He’s not going to throw away playing for England by being at a club where he can’t see a route into the first team. Coming to the Gunners though would be unlikely. Whoever is in charge of Chelsea is not going to want to help a top 4 rival. If though he heard we were keen, perhaps he push for it to happen?
Who else impressed you gooners?
