A contractual disagreement is taking place between Arsenal and their team captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international is on the verge of departing the Emirates stadium. In the event, that Arsenal and their captain fail to reach an agreement with the former Borussia Dortmund player, here are some of the young attackers they can pursue.
Rafael Leao – AC Milan
According to a blog by johnnykash site, at the youth level, the Portuguese international has been tremendously good. And some believe that at his age, he is better than Cristiano Ronaldo is. “At youth level he was better than Cristiano Ronaldo” – Tiago Fernandez the Sporting CP’s youth coach.
In terms of statistics, Leao dismally suffered this season, with his goal contribution dropping down to four, 2 goals and 2 assists from ten games. Nevertheless, with the right coach and a little bit of consistency, the Portugal youth international can be a very good replacement for Aubameyang. And with Mikel Arteta promoting young talents at Arsenal, Rafael might be the man Arsenal need.
Myron Boadu – AZ Alkmaar
Myron Boadu joined the list of the Dutch footballers such as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar as well as Johan Cryuff to score on their international debut. The 18-year-old came in as a substitute to replace Memphis Depay in the second half and scored the fifth goal during the Euro 2020 versus Estonia.
Jean-Philippe Mateta – Mainz
The rise to the top has not been a walk in the park for Jean-Philippe Mateta. At the age of 22, he has worked hard to an extent that he has already featured seven clubs. With his passion and determination, we believe that he is the young talent that Mikel Arteta will require.
On his Bundesliga debut season, Mateta bagged 14 goal providing three assists in his debut season. He is surely a goal machine, and if he was slot machine, online usa casino gamblers would be walking away with amazing wins and awesome bonuses.
