Arsene Wenger apparently turns his attention to the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo‘ after saying missing out on the real thing is one of his ‘biggest regrets‘.
The 18-year-old has only made six appearances for Benfica this season, despite being dubbed the ‘new Ronaldo’ and his price tag being a – quite frankly – laughable £40m.
The likelihood of Wenger spending this amount of money on a teenager who’s still relatively unproven is next to zero.
We already have Olivier Giroud, who is in the form of his life, Danny Welbeck, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, as well as Serge Gnabry on his way back from injury and others, like Chuba Akpom, Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski, out on loan until the end of the season.
For once, I don’t believe buying a striker is on top of our to-do list – especially not one that costs almost as much as Mesut Ozil despite only being 18.
