According to a recent report by German source Sport Bild, Premier League giants Arsenal are said to have registered a ‘concrete interest’ in acquiring the services of Bayern Munich’s prodigious midfield sensation Angelo Stiller. The report suggests that the Gunners want to bring the youngster to North London and that his current contract at the Allianz Arena is set to expire at the end of the 2020/21 league season.
The report suggests that the 19-year-old is keen to prove his worth at Bayern Munich in the long run, but that he’s eager to start playing professional football at the earliest possible opportunity. It has been clarified that despite being 19 already, the German is yet to break into Hansi Flick’s first-team, and given his performance levels at a variety of youth competitions, his frustrations at a lack of regular playing time are more than understandable.
Scouting Arsenal Target Angelo Stiller
What Makes Stiller An Attractive Option For Arsenal?
One of the Gunners’ biggest problem positions over the last few seasons has been holding midfield. Despite the acquisitions of key names like Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi along the way, it could be argued that neither of them has the composure to anchor this midfield regularly. Granit Xhaka who has featured regularly in that role over the last few years, but considering that he was stripped of the captaincy after the mid-season incident, raises questions about his attitude towards the club as well.
How Has Angelo Stiller Made A Name For Himself?
Born in Munich in April 2001, the youngster began his playing career with local club TSV Milbertshofen, from where he was signed up as a young boy by the Bayern Munich academy. Having gone straight into the youth setup and gradually made his way up the ranks, the German was finally promoted to the Munich reserve setup only recently.
Despite having trained with the first-team on multiple occasions, the youngster is yet to play a professional game for the Bayern Munich first-team, which means it’s understandable that Stiller is looking to find a move away to get more playing time. The midfielder has shown excellent signs of his leadership skills right from the start, having captained the Munich U17 setup on their way to a runners up finish in the German championship a couple of years ago.
What Attributes Do Stiller Bring To The Table?
The 19-year-old is undoubtedly at his best when deployed in the role just in front of the two designated centre-halves. The youngster is an excellent passer of the ball, but it must be conceded that most of his strengths are in the defensive phase. The German positions himself superbly to make key interceptions, while he also has the uncanny ability to read passes and cut out play. The Munich ace also offers excellent covering to the back-line with his movement as well as tackling aggression in the middle of the park.
Is This A Move That Mikel Arteta Needs To Make?
The Gunners’ concerns in the midfield have been no secret, and given how things have played out in that area over the last couple of seasons, it would probably make quite a bit of sense for Arsenal to get this deal over the line. At 19, Arteta would have the time required to mould the youngster into the player that he’s after, and considering that he has spent all these years at what is arguably a bigger club than Arsenal in Bayern Munich, expect the German’s infusion into the North London side’s first-team to be fairly seamless.
