Arsenal’s 24 Y/O Belgian Target Red Hot On Juventus’ Radar: 3 Replacements For Him At The Emirates

Following the departure of Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, Arsenal are falling short in numbers in their final third. To get in quality players, Yannick Carrasco of Atletico Madrid is being considered as a possible target. However, it seems now Juventus has entered the negotiations as well and want to hijack the deal. If Arsenal fail to land the Belgian, here are three alternative options for Arsene Wenger to consider.

Lucas

Lucas joined PSG after a lot of hype in the summer of 2012. He has gone on to make 229 appearances for the club and has scored 46 goals and created 50 more in those matches. The big money signing was expected to become one of the best midfielders in the world but the little winger with an excellent dribbling skill is yet to live up to his potential.

The arrival of Neymar, Mbappe, Draxler and Di Maria over the last two seasons has seen Lucas lose his first-team chances. With the Brazilian falling down the pecking order, a move for the winger could be possible in the January window. This might prompt Lucas to move to the north London club where he is likely to get a lot more game time.

Malcom

20-year-old Brazilian winger, Malcom is a versatile winger who can play as a forward as well. He moved to France in 2016 and has since gone on to impress many people around Europe. Malcom is off to a very impressive start this season and has already scored 7 Ligue 1 goals and set up another 6 this season. Malcom’s transfer would be an interesting one, especially if Wenger wants the winger to replace superstar Alexis Sanchez. Malcom has impressed everyone so far but he is still untested in the big waters. He is yet to play for a major European club on a regular basis as a first-team regular.

However, Malcom, at 20, has time on his side and if Wenger does bring him in, he will hope that the winger can go on to make it big and live up to his potential.

Richarlison

The 20-year old attacking player moved to the English side Watford this summer from Fluminense. Richarlison enjoyed a bright start to the Premier League scoring a lot of goals and setting up many as well. Much of the credit for Watford’s impressive start to the new season went to the dynamic Brazilian winger who had been very influential every time Watford were in the final third.

Arsenal could do with a player of his quality in the final third after the exits from the Emirates. As for the Brazilian, he would get a perfect mentor in Wenger to help him hone his talent.
