Even though no player is unsellable for me, it’s strange that there’s talk of moving Guendouzi on while the likes of Willock and Maitland-Niles are still here.
I really like AMN, but to be honest, I would move him on based on the assumption that he is stupid. I view him as a central midfielder. He views himself as a right sided midfielder who can play central midfield.
In Artetas system, right back is basically central midfield. If he can't see that then he is literally stupid. We are inverting Bellerin who is struggling there, Soares will probably be inverted and AMN is easily better than both of them there. I wish someone like Lauren would call him up and have a word with him.
Willock I would never sell. I would easily sell Guendouzi over Willock. People talk about Willock like he is a 24 year old fully developed central midfielder who is just playing badly.
Willock is 20 ffs. He is a prime example of someone who develops. Through the years we were wondering why did Arsenal let Marcus Mcguane go. Why is Wenger giving minutes to this kid? He looks like he can't control his body, his first touch his heavy, he just plays it safe, what is he?
Look at how he has developed and what he has shown and what he has displayed. He is our highest goal scoring midfielder. He displays a massive skill set. He can drive through the best midfield in the world. Put that into perspective. He can carry the ball from one box to another vs Liverpool. He can score from outside the box, inside the box, first time finishes, he isn't afraid to shoot. He can spray the ball all over the pitch. His passing range is so underrated.
We are stagnating him by playing him as a 10. I would start him ahead of Ceballos.
