- Rio Ferdinand tells Mikel Arteta to place a priority on Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka, and Gabriel Marinelli.
- Arsenal likely to lose Dani Ceballos to Real Betis
Rio Ferdinand has told Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, to build his team around the likes of Joe Willock, Buka Saka, and Gabriel Martinelli even as Arsenal continue with their rebuilding under Mikel Arteta according to Metro.
Rio Ferdinand’s opinion isn’t wrong, but Arsenal’s major problem isn’t really in the young stars, instead, it has been on how these young players are played and also the right manager to tutor them to glory.
Rio Ferdinand who sees the three players like Arsenal’s future looked critically on how the manager has been able to coordinate the team since taking over Unai Emery.
I honestly think Arteta is doing great, he’s been able to prioritize young players ahead of already established players. Since taking over from Emery, we’ve seen a huge favour on Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette.
Arsenal likely to lose Dani Ceballos to Real Betis
With his current contract at Arsenal set to express in June, Arsenal would not make his deal permanent as Real Madrid open up plans to lay him off as per Express.
Signing for Arsenal in a bid to revive his career and boost his chances of making it at Real Madrid, Ceballos came to London with high hopes but failed to find a breakthrough in the first half of the season.
However coming into the second half of the season, Ceballos showed what he is capable of doing. Right now, Ceballos preferred destination upon expiration of his contract would be fellow Spanish La Liga side Real Betis.
Arsenal fans should expect nothing more than an exit from the club. Arteta’s plan is for young players to show what they’ve got.
But should Dani Ceballos even leave Arsenal in the first place? Leaving arsenal right now would dent his hopes of playing for Real Madrid.
This would be fantastic, he’s come on so much and could become Arsenal best midfielder at this rate, because of the pandemic right now, there’s no chance or whatsoever to continue with it.
