Opinion – Arsenal needs a Sadio Mane, I think I have found him

Sadio Mane has emerged as one of the Premier League’s best players in recent seasons and he is even being considered as a part of the group of players who are favourites to win the Ballon d’Or. Arsenal needs theirs and I have discovered him.

The Senegalese striker has been in the Premier League since 2014 after signing for Southampton from RB Salzburg.

He really reached his full potential after he joined Liverpool in the summer of 2016, and I think that Arsenal can get their Mane if they sign Southampton’s Moussa Djenepo.

The Malian joined the Saints from Standard Liege in the summer and he has shown glimpses of his talents.

He has scored just two goals and provided the same number of assists for Southampton in the Premier League this season.

However, his two goals have been of the highest quality which shows that at 21, he has some magic in his feet.

Sadio Mane had a better goals record in his first season in England, but it was when he joined Liverpool that he turned into a better quality player.

Djenepo will only get better with so much time on his side and I reckon that he can become Arsenal’s Sadio Mane in a few years to come if we sign him now.

    Unfortunately it is useless putting names forward to improve the Arsenal squad, when the Club dithers over signing Saka on £3,000 per week to a new contract, procrastinates on resigning or selling Aubameyang allowing him to run down his contract. Arsenal is full of players unfit to wear the shirt, meanwhile Chelsea with a lower wages bill and better squad than Arsenal coming out of a transfer ban, have bought Zyelich and are about to sign Werner!
    The “management” at Arsenal is a sick joke.

      👍 spot on, Ozzie!

    2. Shakir says:

      Ziyech is a great player.I actually wanted him to be at arsenal to be the ozil replacement.

      And i also believe that Werner is overrated.Just my opinion

      1. Skills1000 says:

        I dont think Werner is overrated. He is very efficient in front of goal. We are too slow as a club. For instance, we delayed in firing Emery. We need quality midfielders. Guendouzi is not good enough to start in midfield. Also Willock should be loaned out.

        Pepe should replace Ozil in the number 10 role. Stop the Saka at left back experiment. Move him permanently to midfield.

        Bellerin. Luiz Mari. Thierney

        Partey Xhaka

        Martinelli Pepe Saka

        Aubemayang

        Thomas Partey signing is a must.
        That is how the first team should look like. Mari needs to work on his pace. Pepe should build more muscles
        Sign Thomas Partey.

        1. ozziegunner says:

          Bellerin should be sold to allow him to pursue his primary career of being a male model. Let Arsenal bring in someone who wants to be a footballer, such as Aarons from Norwich.

        2. GunneRay says:

          Sorry, for a minute there I thought you included Xakha in your list!?

        3. Chris says:

          Guendouzi is still young and can challenge for a starting spot in the future. He is less error prone than Xhaka, who is trying hard to compete with Mustafi on the most stupid mistakes. With that said, he should be nowhere near the first 11. Also, Saka should focus on the Left Back position only and improve his defending. Whenever he played there, he was very good going forward (as he had the left winger next to him when attacking). Whenever he was tested as a left winger he had difficulties going past his man, dribbling and creating space for others. Martinelli can start or be the first sub for both the LW and ST spot. Sell el neny, mkhitaryan, xhaka, kolasinac, Mustafi and Lacazette (i dont want him gone, but we need funds as our owners are cheap). If you gather close to 100mill for them + lets say 40mil for our budget this year, you can get Upamecano, Partey and a player in the mould of Havertz (young, HUGE potential, goal scoring attacking midfielder that can also play wide). So for next year you got Leno, Bellerin, Tierney, Saliba, Upamecano in defence, Partey, Torreira/Guendouzi/Willock/Niles, Havertz starting in midfield and upfront you got Pepe, Aubameyang, Martinelli. For subs, you got Martinez GK, Saka, Cedric, Holding, Chambers, Luiz, Sokratis, Mavropanos (i would get rid of at least 2 more CBs, preferably someone who can fetch a decent amount of money), in midfield you ll have guendouzi, willock, niles, ozil and upfront you ll have only Nelson, Smith-Rowe for the wings and Nketiah for the striker position. A bit thin yea, but every year should be a step forward, not a never ending puzzle. Another first class Left Winger would be awesome, in order to give martinelli the chance to develop properly and get more chances in the Striker position as the first sub of Aubameyang and starter in all cups.

      2. Mogunna says:

        Both are Chelsea players Werner is a top player who is going to hurt every team next year along with Ziyeck.

    3. ahmad73 says:

      Absolutely right. Our club is rotten from top to bottom. Raul and co. should be fired.

  3. Declan says:

    Raul with his links to agents like Kia and other underperforming management at the top at Arsenal are fast becoming a public joke when it comes to transfers.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if Arteta jumps ship if this debacle carries on next season.

  4. Grandad says:

    With respect we do not need a Mane. What we need is a VVD.

  5. Towny254 says:

    We should buy Cantwell form Norwich good young player with talent and 4 lungs never stops

  6. Mobella says:

    We have players who had outperformed this guy who are constantly criticized by you and you are suggesting we add him to that list. 😂😂😂

  7. mika says:

    So is he Senegalese or Malian?
