Easier to say the only thing Luiz has over Zubi is PL experience.
That doesn't seem right. If you look at their stats, they're quite equal, but EPL is a bit tougher league.

But Luiz is a similar level passer, but gives corners, while Zubi does not. Also takes free kicks and penalties. Surely he is better at these than Zubi? Or is there a Juninho at Real Sociedad so Zubi can't take any of these?

I'm fine with either one, but that EPL experience and proven durability, plus free kick etc. speciality gives the edge to Luiz for me. If he isn't that much more expensive, which he likely is.

Its extremely difficult to use stats when comparing midfielders because each of these midfielders may have to perform specific roles for their teams.

Gyokores is similar to Vlahovic tbf and he’s the only striker we ever tried to sign. Not sure tho.

Sure, stats always have to be taken into context. My point was that it can't be true that Zubimendi is a better free kick, corner or penalty taker. The claim was that Zubi is better at everything apart from EPL experience.

I think they're both great options for current Arsenal.

He's the exact profile we are looking for on paper as our 9. But will it translate is the question.


Though with strikers I'm always more willing to give a go with at a later age and new league etc than most positions.

I actually think he'll be our main target at CF with Zubi as our main CM target

Frankie De Jong would be great option as LCM he got tow year left in his contract the only doubt I got that he might want stay one more year

To me that tweet seemed to suggest what I have been saying.

He says Arsenal is interested in both Osimhen and Gyokeres, but that they are likely too expensive especially when midfield is the more important position to improve with how much Arsenal has scored in the past two seasons. And when there is already Havertz, Jesus and Trossard.
 

Arsenal Quotes

The club changed so much, I changed with it and football has changed with us... But one thing never changes: the 90 minutes still belong to the player, 90 minutes during which he is king.
