Arsenala good season came to a triumphant end on Sunday as they flew away The Wanderers of Wolverhampton 5-0 in front of a benevolent Emirates crowd. Many came to express their thanks Mikel Arteta and his playing staff for orchestrating the most unlikely title run that went wrong.
Regardless of how it ended, it promises a bright future in North London, where a few key additions could help them take the final step in their fight against Manchester. Not only that, but now they have too UEFA Champions League football we look forward to again.
This was especially important given the power of attraction such an attraction draws in the transfer market, giving them an advantage over any club without European football or a lesser version of their competition.
It can also prove decisive in attracting other talent from lower levels Premier Leaguewith the promise of minutes in this elite competition that is sure to tempt many.
One such name that might be intrigued by such a prospect is Michael Olise, who reports they now connect with Emirates’ 40 million (35 million) stopover.
How good is Michael Olise?
Although signing someone with such a similar profile may seem questionable Bukayo Sakaas a sneaky, dazzling and elegant right winger with a wicked left foot, the extent to which their England international has been overworked is ridiculous.
To avoid such an event, the acquisition of Olise could provide adequate competition without significantly changing the composition of the team.
Although far from the levels Saki recorded 25 goals this season, the gap is not so great as to suggest that they could not fight for a place. Additionally, a move up the table would certainly boost Olise’s performance while delivering players like Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli.
During that run of form in 2023 that shot the Eagles to comfortable safety, the 21-year-old was instrumental in such a retreat. Statman Dave was the first to call the winger “stunnerin January to expert Clinton Morrison suggested he had was “outstanding” and “a joy to watch” in April.
Ironically, the two met often at the youth level, with Michael Richards, Olise’s youth coach, highlighting their similarities and skill above all others: “It was basically a Michael and Bukayo show. You could see that they were both exceptional, far superior to everyone else.”
One on one serve to further complement the concept, as both are also similar in terms of crosses made on 90 (3.18 vs 3.29), dribbling percentage (78.66% vs 73.39%) and assists (0.24 vs 0. 31). Their collective creativity is probably unparalleled.
If Edu is serious about giving Saka a much-needed mid-season rest, there are probably few transfers on the market with better value for money than the Olise, which would allow for a turnaround with minimum fuss and maximum quality into a starter and replacement.
