If, as expected, Arsenal coach Unai Emery, signs 17-year-old midfield talent Yacine Adli from Paris Saint‑Germain, it will be one of the buys of the summer.
Adli is highly rated by his former Spanish manager and is expected to develop into one of the Worlds best players over the coming years.
So, what will Adli bring to an Arsenal team under Emery?. For his age, he is very composed on the ball and also has stunning vision. If I were looking to find a comparison in terms of ability and skill, it would be Cesc Fabregas, only better.
He is a creative, attacking midfielder, that enjoys nothing more than being surrounded by the opposition, only to carve his way out of trouble and head towards goal.
Adli oozes class, it’s an effortless, natural style of play which will not only compliment Ozil’s but could eventually make the German obsolete.
If he is an example of where Arsenal are heading, fans should already be queuing up to thank Emery and buy a season ticket, it’s quite simply a stroke of genius.
Obviously, Sven Mislintat has been heavily involved in trying secure the youngster and with the assurance of regular playing time and a three-year contract, the addition of Adli casts more doubt over the future of Jack Wilshere.
Former Arsenal star, Robert Pires, at the launch of Arsenal’s new away kit told the Express:
“He’s a talented player. I know him.
“He has very good quality, he’s very fast with the ball. Sometimes he can score. I know Emery likes this type of player. I don’t know what’s happening but if he joined Arsenal, I think he would be a good player for the new squad.”
There are a number of names still rumoured to be heading to the Emirates with Emery already having added Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Dortmund and Stephan Lichsteiner from Juventus to the ranks.
Bernd Leno may yet arrive, with Ousmane Dembele, Steven Nzonzi, Lucas Torreira, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Lukas Klostermann all linked with the north London club. Suddenly Unai Emery’s new look Arsenal is starting to excite its beleaguered fans. The only question left, is who is going in order to balance the books?
