After Alex song’s shocking departure last summer, Arsenal are playing without a proper DM for the whole season now. Arteta is more like a pass distributor than a defensive midfielder. Arsenal need a Vieira like player to dominate big games. It is believed that signing a DM is the main agenda for Wenger in Summer. Lyon’s Maxime Gonalons is one of the target linked with a move to Emirates. Let’s see how good he is and what he will bring new to this Arsenal squad,
Box to Box
Gonalons may not be as good as present Arsenal players technically, However, he is physically strong enough to cope up in England. Gonalons can do his part both in attack and defense. He is known for his timely interceptions and also for starting attacks from the back. He has the stamina to play box-to-box for 90 minutes (may be for more if needed).
Positioning, anticipation and a bit of creativity are the other qualities which make Gonalons a versatile player who can fit perfectly in any top team. Gonalons has proven this season that he is capable of running the game at the top level of football.
Cheap Transfer Money
It is rumored that a bid of around 8-10 million pounds is enough to secure the signature of the French international. Other top European clubs like Juventus and Inter are also interested in the player. If Arsenal are serious about the move, they need to act fast.
