Ok, ok, so maybe I am not as tuned into the Newsnow F5 feed as I used to be because I missed that were are rumoured to be in for a centre midfielder… Jean Michael Seri of Nice.
The mid-twenties Ivorian has been turning heads in Ligue One over the last year. He’s a midget playmaker who boasts great discipline (he’s played under Favre), a powerful engine, and a portfolio of passing that looks quite exceptional. He bagged 9 assists last year with 6 goals. He loves a long shot by the looks of things, which is bad news for Wenger, but at 5ft5, he did manage a header.
Sounds like he has a pretty spot on attitude as well.
“I listen to criticism rather than praise, because that’s the way to improve. You can’t make progress if you only focus on the things you do right,”
I’d imagine he’ll want to be all ears for the, ‘have a good time out there’ and ‘did I tell you the story about the wolf?’… anyway, he looks an exciting name. Not quite Santi, but his hero is Xavi and he is on record as saying he bases his game around not losing the ball. Could be a smart addition. I do have worries about signing another player with limited height, but at least he looks strong. (video)
Needless to say, it looks like we’re attempting to replace our finest cog with someone young, athletic and on the up.
Where are the super hot shit kids you say? Well, Arsenal are apparently front runners to sign Jadon Sancho from Manchester City. The team who just blew £200m on talent are making the England U17 fear it’ll be tough to break into their first team, and he has a soft spot for Arsenal. He’s a South Londoner by trade, and he loves scoring goals. Check out his video here.
Jack Wishere is back in the training. He’s taken a panning online over the last few weeks, deservedly so. He really has fallen off the wagon hard. Such a shame, he had so much promise, and so much fan love. Maybe he can be a late bloomer? Kind of doubt it though…
Right, not much else on today. So I’ll leave you here, stuck at 380 words.
See you in the comments.
P.S. My brother is a DJ and wants you to come to his party. Go. Tell him Le Grove sent you.
