Has Edu gone to Spain to come back with our ‘mystery winger’?

Edu’s flight to Spain sparks fan excitement

Arsenal’s start to the current campaign has been a far cry to the one of last season, where they lost three games on the bounce.

After two Premier League games, Mikel Arteta’s men see themselves second in the league table, only behind current champions Man City on goal difference.

Arsenal and City are the only two teams which have a 100% record intact, and the Gunners will be expected to continue their run next week when they play promoted side Bournemouth.

The mood around the club is exceptional, with fans excited to see how the rest of the season will pan out for them.

And a recent development has sparked further excitement in the fanbase. After the impressive win against Leicester City on Saturday, technical director Edu was seen taking a flight to Valencia, Spain.

Which has made the club’s faithful thrilled about a new signing, which might be in the pipeline. It is no secret that the North London outfit want to recruit a wide attacking player in their team before the transfer window shuts down in two weeks’ time.

The club seriously pushed to land former Leeds United man Raphinha. And although Arsenal have not launched a bid for any other wide forward since then and we have been waiting for the elusive “mystery winger” ever since. Raphinha’s case is a testament that the Gunners are very interested in adding another player of high caliber in their already star-studded attacking force.

One player in Spain, where Edu has travelled to, who has been linked to the club is none other than Villareal’s Yeremy Pino, which is very close to Valencia.

The exciting winger has already made 78 appearances for the Yellow Submarine, while also putting on the national colours of Spain four times. And he doesn’t turn 20 until mid-October.

He’s clearly one of the most exciting teenagers out there in world football at the moment and his arrival will add much needed competition and depth to Arsenal’s attacking wing areas, where Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka currently hold the fort at.

His arrival will also free up Martinelli to play up-front, whenever Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah might not be available.

The London side’s involvement in Europe this season certainly makes the case of adding another winger to the squad stronger.

Adding the quality of Pino will only elevate the level of the current team Arteta has at his disposal.

  1. It’s difficult to say for sure, but it looks all wrong from the outside.

    It feels strange to sign someone this young and put them straight into the first team without considering the effect this would have on people like Marquinhos who’s just joined, is the same age and making a good case for himself in U21/U23 games.

    And he hasn’t been sent out on loan yet with a couple of weeks left of the window…

    Also when you look at Pepe still in the squad… I’d expect him to be gone before any incomings in the same position.

    With Saka likely to get a big wage increase you’d end up with 3 very expensive players covering the RW position – although Saka can play other positions, so unless he’s changing role…

    Also, Edu likes to talk to player and family first, see if they talk about nothing but money, see if they’re a fit for the squad (which is very important to Edu/MA), family happy to move to the grey skies of London etc. That may be what he’s there to do on this trip…

    But still, it just doesn’t feel right somehow.

  2. Let Hutchison leave for nothing and spend 50 million on a player who is not a lvl above ,cannot see it ,seeing we just signed Marquinhos as well seems a non story .
    CM is where we need upgrading or cover not RW where we already have 4-5 players who can play there .

  3. I totally agree, lets cover midfield, Party and Xaka are not consistent enough in my book, let’s go with Martin, Emile and Zinchenko, Xaca in my opinion needs to go, first player booked again last week against Palace, liability.

  4. well said sir. i mean the player is talented from all accounts, but with marquinos it would be an odd signing

  5. I believe we are looking at any exceptional young player that will be around the club for many years to come.

    We seem to forget the reputation that The Arsenal have got in developing young players and I’m certain that when ANY player is signed, the club’s history, culture and name will be more influential than worrying about being sent out on loan as part of their learning curve.
    Just look at Saliba for the perfect example!!!

  6. He is a talented player if there is room for more incoming players they should sign remember we have a lot of competition Up coming and mind you guys that was the secrete of m.city and liverpool they have more than enough player in each wing.

  7. Liverpool have 5 top players for 3 spots in their forward line and here our fans are crying about us adding another talent to our squad smh.
