Jack Wilshere has told Arsenal that Leeds’ Raphinha would be a good signing for Arsenal, despite the fact that ‘he’ll be expensive’.
The Gunners are in the hunt for attacking reinforcements this summer, with both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both yet to be replaced.
While we are being linked with a number of potential forwards and strikers, with the possibility of adding one of each, Raphinha is one we are believed to be keen on.
Wilshere is positive about such a move, claiming that he shows a lot of experience for somebody with such limited time in the top English division.
“For someone who’s only been in England for two years, he’s got a lot of experience,” Wilshere told talkSPORT (via the Standard).
“He came to England and just clicked straight away. He was in a relegation battle last year so he knows he’s up for a fight.
“I think he’d be a good one for Arsenal. He’ll be expensive, of course he will.”
As much as I agree that Raphinha would be a good signing, I can’t help but believe that we have to focus on bringing in the right striker before splurging such amounts on other areas of the side. I don’t believe we have too huge a budget at present, although there are players that should be moved on to boost our coffers this summer.
Could Raphinha be important enough a player to be signed before we have sealed ourselves a new striker?
