Arsenal target likened to Gunners legend Thierry Henry

Arsenal target, Patson Daka has been likened to Thierry Henry by his former coach.

The striker has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer with the Gunners battling Liverpool and Manchester United for his signature (HITC).

He is one of the top players at Austrian side, RB Salzburg and he scored 25 goals for them in all competitions last season.

He also played against Liverpool in the Champions League group stages in that campaign, and he scored twice against them in pre-season this summer.

He has continued to develop his game and he is expected to follow the likes of Takumi Minamino to sign for a top team in Europe sooner rather than later.

With an eye for goal that can be developed further because he is just 21 years old, his former manager at Power Dynamos, Dan Kabwe, has likened him to former Arsenal goal machine, Henry.

“When I saw Patson Daka, what came into my mind is this guy is the next Thierry Henry – and in no time he has proved it,” Kabwe told News Diggers.

“Where he is at Salzburg, it is a stepping stone. He has the potential to go further and meet other challenges. He is capable of making it (at the top level).

“He is an intelligent boy and full of talent. If the boy is already swimming in the deep end, why limit him?”

  1. Is Kia now Arsenal spokesman? He’s now speaking on Arsenal affairs weekly. His clients are Edu, Luis, William and Cedric Soares. Does that give him enough mandate to be speaking about Arsenal in the press.

    Edu got Arsenal to sign a 29 yr Soares, Kia player, for a strange 4yr deal. An average player who has no saleable value. Kia is pushing Anderson of West Ham as well on Arsenal.

    Edu will end up being sacked if he continues to push Kia’s average and expensive players on the club

    1. IF Kia is PAtson Daka’s agent then i am glad .
      This is one player i would sell Lacazette over .
      HE is a well rounded striker with speed . Think Mane but taller with speed and player as a striker , this should be the player to replace Auba because apart from Auba we have no striker better than i repeat no striker ,

  2. Arsenal can’t even stump up €50 million for Thomas Partey, a player the Club needs to upgrade a deficient midfield, yet are being linked with strikers and wingers everywhere. What a joke!

    1. By the way a good article would be one that listed all the players and transfer fees, Arsenal has been linked with this window.
      Crank up the Heidelberg press at the Emirates!
