Arsenal Keeping Tabs On This European Defender: Should Emery Go For It?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

According to a recent report by Football.london, Arsenal are monitoring the progress of Pogon Szczecin centre-back Sebastian Walukiewicz but will face stiff competition from a whole host of other clubs in pursuit of the Polish wonderkid’s signature.

Does Arsenal Need A Player Like Walukiewicz?

Unai Emery has made a great start to his career at the Emirates Stadium after guiding his players through a remarkable unbeaten run across all competitions. However, the Gunners manager needs more help from the club’s academy to produce a few more stars in the near future. The addition of Walukiewicz could be a significant coup for the club’s youth setup as he has the potential to become a first-team regular for Emery in a few years time.

Who Is Sebastian Walukiewicz?

The 18-year-old grew up playing football back in his home country of Poland and joined Legia Warsaw at a very young age. He worked his way up the club’s youth teams before representing Legia II. However, the Polish giants chose not to retain him as he ended up making a switch to Pogon Szczecin in the summer of 2017.

What Will He Bring To The Emirates Stadium?

Walukiewicz has featured in 13 matches for Szczecin this season and had one assist to his name. His commanding displays at the back has helped Kosta Runjaić’s side climb to the 7th place in the Polish top-flight standings, nine points off Lechia Gdansk who are currently leading the table.

The 18-year-old has also represented his nation in every youth level from Under-15 onwards. If the Szczecin youngster can continue improving his game, then he might just be able to break into the Polish national squad in a few years’ time. Walukiewicz is also highly versatile and can fill in as a defensive midfielder if required.

Can This Polish Midfielder Be A Wise Investment For The Future?

With the player prices ridiculously inflated in the transfer market these days, it might be a smart idea for a club like Arsenal to invest on the youth to develop some first-team starters for the future.

That’s one of the main reasons why the Gunners should bring Walukiewicz to North London and give him a nurturing environment so that he can be ready for Premier League football in the years to come.
