Should Arsenal hijack Manchester United move for their former academy star?

Arsenal is one team that can take credit for developing youngsters that then become players for their first team.

A number of players have broken through from the Arsenal academy or they have joined the Gunners from a young age and developed into world-class players.

However, there are players who have gotten away from the Emirates and their decision not to stay at the club has turned out to be a smart one.

One such player is Ismael Bennacer. Still just 22, the midfielder left Arsenal in 2017 after failing to break into the first team.

His decision to join Empoli for more first-team chances has proven to be the right one as he earned a move to AC Milan and he is now being wanted by two of Arsenal’s Premier League rivals. claims that Manchester United and Manchester City both want the Algerian midfielder.

Arsenal is in need of a midfielder that is why we have been linked with a move for Thomas Partey (Mail).

The Ghanaian is one of the best in his position at the moment, but he will not come cheap.

I think that we should consider a move for Bennacer and look to hijack his return to England. Just because it did not work out when he was younger does not mean that he cannot do a job now that he has developed his game further.

  1. No. Didnt work 1st time let it go and move on…

    Partey hopefully signed
    Auba hopefully signs new deal
    Saliba comes fresh
    Saka & Martielli signed new deals

    Could be worse!!

          1. Glorious comment again. You in CL form me mate :).

            Why Laca won’t be sold?

            Cuz we already have Nketiah,Martinelli & Auba there or you his agent? Maybe you have hook ups with the board, we selling Auba and keeping Laca?

            Just one reply be glorious of you me mate…

        1. Torreira :-Bennacer works just find as well, also add up Partey for Laca in in cases will be great business.

          If one gets injured we have another, bennacer can be played in different ways. with Partey as well..

  2. Bennacer is a great footballer and knows our style of play, team and most of our youngsters…

      1. Seriously, he is the future, look back is useless indeed, if he stayed he would not have played two full seasons by now, not devellop as he has.

        So, I think it is positive and he would love to join back of course, knows our team, play, club and extremely talented.

        1. We had a buy back clause, but decided against using it, so can’t see us going in for him now, Mogunna

    1. You do remember a certain Martin Keown? Wasn’t he sold and then bought back. How good was he for us? Not saying that Bennacer will be that good, but if he is as good as touted, then I don’t see why not so long as it does not cost much. Swap deals is a good way to go.

      1. How could I forget that legend?! 🙂
        Yes, you’re correct…👍
        I can’t understand why we’d be in for him now – after some good performances – even though we had a buy back clause, which wasn’t activated! It wouldn’t make sense!

  3. We are making mistakes as to bring back Nelson flyer ng in Germany as he was. At least not bring Pepe to play before him then…

    Im already scared for tomorrow, if Arteta plays Luiz and we lose, this website will be fuming tomoro

  4. Fighter with comfort on the ball, I do not see why we let him leave. He is comparable to Lucas T.

    A little taller than Lucas but wont be a beast in aerial duels too.

  5. We should’ve loaned him to Empoli see how he got on that season and assessed at the end of it.

    The worse one we let go was Donyell Malen
