A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Sport claimed that Arsenal are among the clubs hoping to land Barcelona winger Ilias Akhomach. It is believed that the Gunners will face competition in the form of AC Milan and Sevilla in pursuit of the Spanish wide player.

Akhomach’s Impressive Rise At Barcelona

Akhomach is playing for Barca Atletic at the moment after coming through the youth ranks of the Catalan club over the past few years. The 19-year-old has made 42 appearances for Barca Atletic so far, scoring four goals in the process across all fronts.

The talented wide player has caught the eye with his performances in the youth levels of Spanish football. He has also made three senior appearances for Barcelona thus far.

His current contract at the Catalan club is set to run out at the end of this campaign which could open the door for the Gunners to snap him up during the summer transfer period.

Arsenal Are Among The Clubs Hoping To Land Achomach: Is He A Prospect For The Future?

Akhomach is a technically gifted footballer who can make some dangerous runs with the ball in the final third when he is playing with confidence on the pitch. He can shoot the ball with venom and accuracy from long range and has got the vision to engineer some promising chances for his teammates up top. The Spanish youngster mainly operates on the right wing but can also fill in as a left-sided wide player or as a centre-forward if asked to do so.

Akhomach is good enough to become a future start at the Emirates Stadium under the expert stewardship of Mikel Arteta. At 19, he has the potential to become one of the best players in his position someday.

Hence, the Gunners would be wise to make a move to secure the services of the Spanish whizkid when he becomes a free agent at the end of this season.

There is no doubt that Akhomach is a prospect to watch out for in the future as long as he continues to develop his all-round game with each year. Thus, the North London club should think about giving him a chance to shine in English football next season.
