Ian Wright prediction about Leicester City star comes true, should Arsenal consider a swap deal?

Ian Wright is one of Arsenal’s most outspoken legends. The Englishman has had a say on most issues concerning the Gunners and he is also not one to shy away from recommending players that the Gunners should sign.

He has made a number of recommendations before now and one player that he raved about is Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.

The England full-back has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer (The Guardian) as it seems that Frank Lampard has a huge budget to rebuild his team.

Speaking one year ago, Wright said as quoted by Football London: “Someone like Ben Chilwell. He is the kind of left-back who is getting better with every game. He’s an England international now. Somebody that I’m sure is going to be sought after.”

Wright’s prediction has proven to be true with the defender now one of the best in his position in the Premier League.

Arsenal signed a new left-back last summer and we have two other players who can play in that position and you would probably think that it doesn’t make sense that we would move for him.

However, Leicester City has been linked with a move for Kieran Tierney (The Express) and I believe that it would make sense if we swap the Scotsman with Chilwell should that become possible.

This is because Chilwell has valuable experience playing in the Premier League since he broke into the Leicester City first team.

This move looks almost impossible on paper, but I think it would be amazing if we pulled it off, what do you think?

    Due to a serious injury Tierney has not had a chance to impress. I think he will develop into a class player, should he stay injury free, and needs to be given another opportunity which I believe Arteta will. In my opinion central midfield should be our priority not left back.

    a swap plus about £50m going to Leicester!

    Why would he choose us over Chelsea ?

    I would be up for that! Given what we’ve already seen, Tierney might be yet another injury nightmare for us, and I am fed up of it! That said, LB is the least of our worries given that Saka is pretty much the best LB in the league right now.

    RB, CB, CDM, and CM have to be the priorities in the summer transfer window.

    He is a good player but is definitely not the best in the league.
    Some of his performances are really questionable in some matches.I wish him good luck and a bright future but we shouldnt go for him.

    1. ClassyGunner says:

      Yes. Plus I believe Tierney will be better than him

    Most of the time you have nothing to post here, we have tierney, kolasinac and saka….. You one confused fella

    Chilwell and Tierney are on a par in terms of ability and international experience.Why on Earth therefore would anyone in their right senses consider swapping one for the other.If Chilwell moves it will not be to Arsenal that is for sure.
