Wright names the player he would love to see at Arsenal

Paul Pogba is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, and the Frenchman has recently returned to form.

Pogba’s time at Manchester United hasn’t been the best for him, with the World Cup winner constantly coming in for criticism.

He is set to leave the club at the end of this season, or when his contract expires at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

Ian Wright has been impressed by the turnaround that the midfielder has enjoyed this season, and he admitted that he would love to have the former Juventus man in his team.

Pogba has been instrumental as Manchester United recovered from a poor start to the season to become joint-top with Liverpool on the Premier League table in the New Year.

Wright praised him for getting back to his brilliant best and putting all his problems behind him to become an important player for United again.

“Yes [he is back to his best] and you know, with all the stuff that’s happened with him he’s getting it right on the pitch,” he said as quoted by Mirror Football.

“He’s put it all to the side and to be honest he’s putting in good performances. He was unlucky there [not to score against Villa] but I thought with his ability he should have scored.

“Great touch, great play, great awareness, great skill. He’s getting everyone playing and that’s what he does.

“He was everywhere. He was in his own box, he was up there in their box, he was doing everything today.

“That’s what he can do with his creativity. you give him this much time when you have willing runners like Marcus Rashford….that is just fantastic.

“A super, super pass. I’d love to have someone like that.”

    I strongly disagree with Ian on Arsenal’s Pogba need. He only performs with the ball at his feet, he’s casual, unserious, lacks work rate, gives away the ball often, over stylish, gallop runs, doesn’t contribute 2 pressing etc. I won’t buy him 4 £30m. Though my opinion anyway.

    @Arsenal2win. I totally agree with you. Don’t need Pogba in the team.

    The mighty Ian Wright hero of all Gooner sand someone I JUST ADORE
    BUT on this matter Wrighty, I doubt you will find more than very minimal agreement among Gooners for your view and certainly NONE from me.

    Do we not have enough idle players already “doing us a favour by agreeing to wear the shirt”? I would not touch this person with a bargepole!

    Sorry Wright but I don’t agree with you.
    Imagine having xakai, willian, ozil, Pepe, in the first eleven they wouldn’t run to heat their self…..

    Ian get off the sauce! Pogba is massively overrated and was pocketed by Partey at old Trafford! He’s been very average at United his best years was at Juve

    If you can get young talented 27 year Brazilian or Spanish creative mildfilder then he can bring alote of charges in the team.
