Arsenal becomes interested in another Villarreal player

Villarreal is quickly becoming a breeding ground for talented attackers, and Arsenal has continued to be linked with a move for their players.

After reports claim they are interested in Samuel Chukwueze, Yeremy Pino broke onto the scene, and they linked him with a move to the Emirates.

The Yellow Submarines have unearthed a new gem, with Álex Baena now stealing all the headlines at the club.

The 21-year-old has 6 goals and 2 assists from 10 matches in all competition so far, and he could get better.

Sport says several top European clubs are circling him, and one of them is Arsenal.

The Gunners need a new winger after allowing Nicolas Pepe to leave the club, and Baena could be the player that joins to solve that problem for them.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have done well in terms of signing young players for much of our history, and that could help us to convince him to join.

However, having just broke into their team, with so much more development to do, he might choose to spend more time on the books of Villarreal before looking for a new home.

We could sign him and send him back there on loan or to another club in La Liga to continue developing.

  1. I would rather continue with ESR as an option on the wing, and giving Marquinhos more opportunities to earn a spot. Competition seems to be developing just fine on the wings, and I hope we continue with the players we have.

    Backup DM is more important, and I would argue a plan B striker take precedence over yet another winger with ESR and Marquinhos needing some opportunities.

    Bowen is an example of how quickly things can change, so rather we continue the development of players we have rather than hunting elsewhere.

  2. Good points Durand especially the one about a DM and support striker.
    And, who knows, Reiss Nelson may experience a renaissance during the season to add to our options at the wings

    1. I agree with our options on the wings; it is the coaching staff’s responsibility to help develop these players and get them ready to play and compete.

      Sometimes I think we may be too quick to go outside for solutions rather than the players we have.

      Marquinhos is a great example. Why hunt elsewhere for a potential wing option when we already have one?

      Reports indicate Arteta has already changed his mind about Marquinhos, and has already introduced him into the first team rather than being a longer term projection.

      Perhaps polishing Marquinhos a bit and giving some opportunities and we can avoid spending 30 million or more on another winger transfer.

  3. Since we have Nelison and marquinhos, it’s better to polish them than spending more on a winger yet we need a midfielder

  4. Only a club with depth can compete for titles, what arsenal need for now are two more players a defensive midfielder and a winger both matinelli and Saka need cover, ESR is prone to injuries and we have about four competitions to play this season

  5. Gunner4life they have said it all. Needless to buy players let’s develop the one we have to a better players than to waste money. Every thing is all about training hard. All we need is defensive midfield and a winger that all. I remain Gunner4life. The the player like Jesus and zenchenko we are going to be in top 4 if not PL champion by the grace of God.
