Arsenal have been searching for a replacement for the departed Aaron Ramsey for some time now and if the latest reports are to be believed, they have finally identified the ideal successor to the Welsh wizard.
According to the media the international teammate of Lucas Torreira, midfielder Nahitan Nandez, is the man they have set their sights on.
Apparently, the Boca Juniors playmaker is now at the top of the Arsenal wishlist and while no price has been mentioned in the latest reports a fee of €20 Million has been previously reported.
That is a price we can clearly afford and it would open up the possibility of Torreira partnering up with a compatriot that he is comfortable playing alongside and that can only be a positive.
Nandez is just 23-year-old, is a proven international, plays for one of Argentina’s top clubs and while I cannot pretend to know too much about him I am certainly intrigued by the reports I have read.
He appears to be a talented individual and it could be huge for us if he does click at club level with Torreira.
You see, I like Torreira, he was brilliant at the start of the season and so we know he has the talent to be far better than he showed at the end of the season and it does help when a fellow countryman joins. It helps create stability, someone to talk and socialise with, someone that shares your culture and someone you can freely communicate with.
That can help bring out the best in a players game and it could well be that Torreira and Nandez do that for each other.
The bottom line for me is that I see this as being a positive signing for a whole variety of reasons.
