Arsenal are now a club thrown into transformation. They have replaced Arsene Wenger with Unai Emery and will now be busy trying to add players that fit into his system next season. While the former PSG manager is desperate to improve the first team, he is also keeping an eye on adding some exciting youngsters to his squad and one player he was desperate for is Yacine Adli.
Having helped the French U18 international break into the first team at PSG, Emery wanted to oversee his progress in England and wanted Arsenal to sign him. However, the 17-year old is now set to sign a new deal with the French giants, leaving Arsenal hanging. So how can Emery replace his potential at Emirates? Here are three such brilliant players, still, at the start of their career, that could be a hit in London:
Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen):
The 19 year German is touted as one of the most exciting talents on show in the Bundesliga at the moment. He already has 54 league appearances in Germany and is growing in confidence by the game. Leverkusen will not be ready to let him leave any time soon but his performances last season showed that he is ready for the next step and there is no reason why Arsenal should not sign him. He is still a teenager and has loads of potential and could be a match-winner for the Gunners for years to come.
Marco Asensio (Real Madrid):
Though not young as Adli, the Spanish international, who is a crucial part of the national side in Russia for the World Cup, Asensio has struggled for game time at Bernabeu for a couple of years now. At just 22, he has already got the better of even the best defence in his country and in Europe and has shown that he is not fazed by the big occasion. Unlike Adli, he will walk into the first team at Arsenal, and though is a bit expensive, is exactly the kind of a player Emery should target for his stint in London.
Max Meyer (Schalke):
The German international rejected a chance to sign a new deal with Schalke and will be a free agent at the end of the month. He has great potential and has gathered loads of experience in the German top flight, making himself ready for the biggest stage. He is wanted by a number of clubs in Europe and coming for free, he will be a huge coup for Arsenal. He is still 22 and has an impressive future ahead of him and is a decent option for the Gunners.
