Arsenal have been looking forward to making their season free from the initial troubles they faced, incurring two back to back losses to deter their progress in the Premier League this term. However, they have now clinched four points from their last two outings, having won deservedly against Bournemouth and earning a hard-fought draw against reigning champions Chelsea, starting to turn their fortunes towards positive results.
The Gunners are in need of players who might help them get up the ladder on the points table and are eyeing some of the finest talents from all over the world, including the Mexican domestic league. They are presently monitoring the Uruguayan winger Federico Martinez, who is plying his trade in the domestic league for the Montevideo based club Liverpool FC.
The young speedster is one of the most highly rated in South America, making him a potential target for a number of clubs from all over Europe including the likes of Premier League club Everton and Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid recently.
However, the North Londoners might be the first team to make the approach for bagging the talented attacker in the next transfer window, gazumping their Premier League as well as Spanish La Liga rivals.
Known for his blistering pace and crisp passes into the attacking third, the 21-year-old winger has made it into the senior side through the ranks gradually over the last few years. He is a very reliable free kick taker and has high success rate from set-piece situations, apart from making darting runs down the flanks, making it easier for his teammates to score goals with his pinpoint crosses into the opposition box.
He is also strong in the air and can be dangerous while vying with the opponents in aerial duels to take possession of the ball and score goals with his head.
His substantial strength and energy has been one of the many reasons that has attracted the eyes of the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who has been a connoisseur of youth, throughout his tenure as a coach and has turned a number of young and exuberant players into superstars of the future with his benevolent tutelage and guidance, the best examples being stalwarts like Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas.
Undoubtedly, it is going to be a great opportunity for the 21-year-old to play under the coaching of one of the best managers in Europe if the North London club brings him into their side in the next transfer window. But can he be a hit in England?
