That's a Wenger team . Arsène would love this lot.Nketiah-Balogun-Saka
It will probably never happen but this might be the best period for Hale End in decades.
A hell of a lot would need to happen for this team to even be conceptualised as a thing tbh. I expect most of the names mentioned to still be Arsenal players up to 4-5 years from now but we'll have to sell a couple IMO. I can see us keeping both Walters and Norton-Cuffy but both are RBs by trade - unless Walters transitions fully to CB, he'll be out, or maybe he edges out Norton-Cuffy! We got a couple Hale End CBs who are in with a shout aswell if developed right. That's a longshot too.
I also have a hunch that Balogun's outta here in the next couple years. Yeah, he can play wide as can Nketiah, but I just feel like Nketiah's more of an Arteta player than Balogun is. Balogun has natural ability in spades, more than most we've produced I'd say, but I don't think he defends from the front anywhere near as well as Nketiah and that's the one thing I hope he gains from being on loan. Otherwise, that's a nice lil £30-40m we could make if he continues to bang in France, or maybe a short term deal with a buyback.
