Arsenal Face Competition In Pursuit Of Barcelona Winger: What Will He Bring To The Emirates Stadium?

According to a recent report by Calciomercato, Arsenal will face stiff competition from AC Milan in pursuit of Barcelona wing wizard Malcom this summer. The same source has revealed that the Serie A giants are plotting a £45m raid of the Brazilian talent which would mean that the Gunners have to step up their chase or else risk losing out to the San Siro outfit.

Malcom Could Solve Arsenal’s Wing Problems

Unai Emery can use a player of Malcom’s potential in the upcoming campaign as his current squad is lacking in depth on the wide positions. Alex Iwobi is currently the only natural winger at the North London club which is a quite surprise for a team with Champions League aspirations.

Hence, winning the race to recruit Malcom could be crucial in determining whether they will succeed under Emery’s tutelage in the upcoming season.

The Brazilian’s Struggles At the Nou Camp This Season

Malcom has experienced a frustrating campaign since making a high-profile switch to the Nou Camp from FC Girondins Bordeaux last summer. He has made just 19 appearances for the Catalan giants this term, scoring four goals while providing two assists in all competitions. Hence, a change in scenery could help the player reignite his career in European football.

What Will Malcom Bring To The Emirates Stadium?

The 22-year-old has tremendous pace and is a very potent dribbler with the ball down the wide areas. The South American wonderkid can play on either wing or as a secondary striker up front which makes him a useful tool for any of his potential suitors.

Hence, Arsenal should consider splashing the cash for recruiting the Brazilian wing wizard as he will undoubtedly bolster Emery’s attacking options at the North London club. The Gunners need to make some shrewd acquisitions over the summer transfer window so that they have a strong squad capable of competing on all fronts next season.

Should The Gunners Splash The Cash On The Brazilian Starlet?

Malcom will not only add more width to the Arsenal attack but will also improve Emery’s squad depth which is necessary if they are to win some silverware in the coming years. Thus, the North London giants should do everything in their power to land the La Liga prospect ahead of the new campaign.
