Should Arsenal raid Brighton for one of their bargain signings?

Arsenal are being linked with a return to Brighton to take another one of their impressive performers from the campaign thus far, following up our deal to sign Leandro Trossard with a potential move for Kaoru Mitoma.

Few would argue that Erling Haaland is the Premier League signing of the season; the Manchester City man is a machine, as evidenced by his 25 goals in 19 games. Manchester City paying £64 million to sign Haaland from Borussia Dortmund is a bargain, but according to Premier League legend Michael Owen, Brighton’s £2.6 million signing of game changer Mitoma is the “best steal”.

As a Gooner, I’m sure you’re wondering what this season’s best signings has to do with you. Arsenal were linked with moves for both Leandro Trossard and Kaoru Mitoma just a few days ago, according to 90 Min. Yes, Trossard was signed, but there’s a belief they have not abandoned their interest in Mitoma, who could remain a future option.

Anyway, Michael Owen has just given Arteta enough reason to sign Mitoma by claiming the Brighton man is better value for money than Haaland. He tweeted:

After signing Trossard, does a move for Mitoma make sense for Arsenal? Personally, I believe that if Arsenal has the opportunity to sign some of the most promising Premier League prospects, they should do so. Realistically Kaoru wouldn’t be as good value for us given that his value has increased tenfold however.

  1. He would be a great addition.

    Right now, the emphasis is rightly on a defensive midfielder. I trust that Arteta and Gaspar will get someone solid to help the team and give Partey and Elneny competition.

    1. If reports are true that rice is coming, makes sens they haven’t signed someone and they prefer signing someone on loan until rice arrives.

  2. To say the fact, Kaoru Mitoma was a very good and he’s not selfish player and he’s always hungry for goals. If a player like him can join arteta’s squad i believe it’s not a mistake.

  3. Having watched mitoma in one of the games before, I thought arsenal could give preference to him than trossard. However, I discovered that trossard was equally a terrific signing after seeing his performance against man united. Signing mitoma before the January window closes would be the best thing arsenal would ever do.

  4. After getting Trossard, I think we are ok with the forward lineup as Trossard can play across the front 3. The more important thing would be to go in for a specialised DM to rotate with Partey. With ESR also returning to full fitness, I think we are ok with our attack department.

  5. nah I’ve seen him play pretty average, also physically asian player are weaker and slower. better get replacement for xhaka, odegard is great helping saka on the right, we need someone at xhaka position to help martinelli better!

    1. Lol what is that comment on asian players. Son of Tottenham, at his best,was terrific. Is Tomi weaker and slower by the way ?

  6. He is a very good player, very good actually. But the truth is we can’t get every good player we see. There has to be limited or a point where we look away. We hav so many players in that left wing and we just got trossard. if it was right wing it would hav make sense

  7. If Arsenal can get the deal of Mitoma done better for us and the early we get him over the best chances we will before another club snatched him away

  8. The two problematic areas for arsenal have been a left footed centre half (cover for Gabriel) and a DM, (cover for Partey). With Kiwior coming in, our priority now is a DM. Not a forward.
