The Perfect Attacker To Replace Walcott? 3 Reasons Why Arsenal Should Go For Pint-sized Italian

Arsenal have been left light in the striking department yet again following the injury to Theo Walcott who faces six months on the sidelines. With Olivier Giroud and Niklas Bendtner as the only senior strikers in the squad, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Juventus attacker Sebastian Giovinco. Here’s a look at three reasons why Arsenal should sign Giovinco.

1. Versatility in attack


The pint-sized Italian is a versatile player and is able to play multiple roles in attack– he can play as a center forward, behind the main striker in a supporting role or also on the left wing. He is the sort of player who can take on defenders with his smart dribbling, drift out into wide positions to drag defenders out of place, drop deep to get the ball and also play off the shoulder of defenders if required.

His movement will be very important, and the Arsenal midfielders will look forward to him making the runs that will allow them to play through balls in behind the back line. With him dropping deep to get involved in build-up play, it’ll give the midfield runners like Ramsey and Wilshere to make runs into the box, something that has brought lots of goals to Arsenal this season.
