Nah he already played for the u21s and had an assist in his first game. It was already easy for him. You're right though, it was business as much as it was him being talented. Because we hadn't done this for other talents but he was one of the only ones on the brink of leaving.I don’t even think he played U21 football before his debut. It was clearly a business decision. Maybe that’s why his people felt they want to leave, didn’t like how their kid was used for future compensation and had to hear Arteta talk about how he saw something special and had to do it
Bless AkolbireWe want players here who are committed to Arsenal.
Nwaneri will regret this decision, his loss not ours. There will be a chance for someone else
Seems like the likely trio. Think Obi is still a schoolboy next year aswell. Heaven already looks decent.
Would have loved it too, although a lot can happen in a few years. Lewis-Skelly for me personally is a potential superstar. He's very raw but what he's able to do at his age is massive. Capable passer between the lines, competitive ball winner but his dribbling capability is monstrous. Tight space, open space, just cuts through midfield.Myles is indeed a certy balla, but I would have loved to have kept Nwaneri as well. Imagine the three supreme Hale Enders; Saka, Lewis Skelly and Nwaneri in a few years.
