Wilshere urges Arsenal to sign forward with ‘a lot of’ PL experience

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?

  1. I really would like this signing to happen. He’s a great player and he has the potential to start for us. Let’s move Pepe on to make room for him. Early reports are saying Pepe is fine with moving on as well so hopefully we can find a club for him.
