Arsenal Keeping Close Eyes On This Champions League Sensation: Should Emery Sanction The Transfer?

Despite a few slip-ups in the early weeks, Arsenal have emerged as one of the prime ‘top four ‘contenders having missed out on successive occasions. They had a busy summer in terms of inclusions, but it seems the club are still keen on bolstering the squad furthermore and keeping close tabs on an array of prospects who are making significant strides across Europe.

According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners have shown interest in Hwang Hee-chan – the 23-year-old Red Bull Salzburg forward who has recently drawn attention in his side’s thrilling 4-3 Champions League defeat at Anfield against the champions of Europe. The resilient backline of Liverpool got exposed time and again, and the attacker fired in one and laid on another to instigate a comeback despite being down by three goals in the early minutes.

Hee-chan had an underwhelming loan spell in Germany last season with Hamburger SV but is enjoying blistering inception this term with seven goals and ten assists in 11 appearances (stats via Transfermarket) in all competitions.

The Mozartstädter are flying high in Austrian Bundesliga and the South Korea international, having been scouted by many over the years, might finally ply his trade in England to join one of its most prestigious outfits.

Should Arsenal Rope Him In The Forthcoming Future?

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are also in the hunt for the Salzburg sensation, but the profile and charisma of Arsenal would be too hard to ignore. His current deal in Austria runs out in the summer of 2021, and the player would be an excellent value for money recruit for his versatility upfront.

The North London heavyweights splashed the cash on Nicolas Pepe back in August. Although their £72m club-record signing is yet to create an impression at the Emirates, the likes of Bukayo Saka, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson have exhibited glimpses of quality on being promoted into the first-team set-up. The addition of Hee-chan would provide depth as well as cover in the attacking third.

What He Would Bring In At The Emirates

The youngster is lauded for his pace, mazy runs, swift skills and footwork. He caused enough menace in Merseyside despite ending up on the losing side and could potentially be utilised as a ‘super-sub’ to torment a tired defence using his speed and flair. He is not only capable of featuring as a centre-forward but also down the wings and therefore, would boost Unai Emery with more variety and flexibility high up the pitch.
