According to a recent report by Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are considering making an offer to acquire the services of Fulham midfielder André-Frank Zambo Anguissa, who is currently playing on loan at Villarreal CF. The same source has also stated that the Yellow Submarine won’t attempt to make his loan deal permanent for €25m which could open the door for Zinedine Zidane to secure a move for the Cameroonian international in this off-season. However, it is believed that Los Blancos could face competition from Levante in pursuit of the midfield powerhouse this summer (via Mundo Deportivo).
Anguissa’s Impressive Loan Spell In The Spanish Top-Flight
The former Marseille midfield ace has enjoyed a dominant loan spell at the Estadio de la Cerámica after establishing himself as a regular feature at the heart of Javier Calleja’s midfield. He has featured in 28 matches for the Spanish outfit this term, scoring one goal and providing one assist across all fronts. His offensive numbers could be slightly better considering the aerial threat he possesses from set-pieces in the opposition half.
To his credit, Anguissa has averaged 2.2 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 0.8 clearances, 1.0 shots, 0.6 key passes and 2.4 dribbles per game in the La Liga this season which proves that he can be an influential presence at both ends of the field (stats via whoscored).
The Yaounde-born talent has also secured 15 senior caps for the Cameroonian national team while netting two goals for his country in the process. He will once again be expected to play a crucial role for his nation in next year’s African Cup of Nations which will be hosted by Cameroon.
What Will The Cameroon International Add To Zidane’s Team?
Anguissa is a commanding presence who can exercise his power and quickness to cover a lot of ground and win the ball back for his side at the centre of the park. He excels at making tackles and doesn’t mind putting his body on the line to block a goal-bound shot from the opposition at the back. The 24-year-old can also use his pace and power to make some driving runs with the ball going forward, which can sometimes make him an unstoppable force in midfield when he is playing with confidence on the pitch. However, he is yet to prove his worth in English football which will be a concern for any of his potential suitors.
At the same time, Real Madrid would be fully aware by now about how well Anguissa has performed in the Spanish top tier this season, so Zinedine Zidane would be wise to consider making an offer for the talented Fulham midfielder this summer. He will not only add some bite and steel to the Madrid midfield but also enhance the overall depth of Zidane’s squad. Plus, the Cottagers midfielder will also provide some healthy competition for Casemiro and Federico Valverde for one of the holding midfield spots in Los Blancos’ starting XI.
Having more options in midfield will help the Madrid giants cope with fixture congestion better. Anguissa’s addition could also offer Zidane more variety in terms of his team selection, tactics and formations in the coming seasons.
