Arsenal Join Race With Dortmund & Leicester To Recruit La Liga Winger: What Will He Add To Emery’s Side?

According to a recent report by the Daily Mail, Arsenal have joined the chase to acquire the signature of Ferran Torres from Valencia during the summer transfer window. However, the same source has claimed that the Gunners will face stiff competition from Leicester City, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid in pursuit of the La Liga prospect in this offseason.

Torres’ Impressive Season At The Mestalla Stadium

The Spanish wide man came through the youth ranks of Valencia before finally breaking out as a first-team starter last year. He has enjoyed an impressive campaign for the La Liga outfit after putting in some eye-catching displays for them during the recently concluded Spanish top-flight season.

Torres is primarily a right-sided winger but can also feature on the left flank if needed. The Spaniard has featured in a total of 37 matches for Marcelino García Toral’s side this term, finding the back of the net on three occasions while earning two assists across all competitions.

The 19-year-old has also represented Spain at various youth levels and is currently an integral member of the Spanish Under-19 team. He has the potential to represent his nation at the senior level as long as he is willing to work hard to improve his game on the pitch.

What Will The Spanish Starlet Add To Emery’s Team?

Torres boasts decent pace and is a very effective dribbler with the ball down the wide positions. He is not afraid to beat his marker on the dribble to create chances for others around him or set up a goal-scoring opportunity for himself. However, the Spanish youngster is still quite raw and will need to work on increasing his productivity in the final third.

At 19, Torres has a lot of time to develop himself as a winger and become one of the best in European football someday. The Valencia wonderkid might not be guaranteed first-team football at the Emirates Stadium if he decides to join Emery’s revolution at North London.

However, if he is willing to be patient, then Arsenal could be an ideal destination for his long-term growth as a footballer. He will not only bolster Emery’s attacking options in the future but will also improve the overall squad depth of the Gunners ahead of the new season.
