Super intelligent

The Gunners’ are severely lacking in the creativity department. However, with Mesut Ozil reportedly on his way out of the club after a public dispute with the manager, there would be space in the team for the young Hungarian.

His shot has been described as a “thunderbolt” and someone who possesses “superintelligence”, that extra bite in midfield that Arsenal have been lacking in recent years.

Arsenal and should take full advantage of the opportunity to bring the youngster in. Not only will he improve as his career progresses, but the manager can use Szoboszlai to his strengths and potentially score more goals from midfield.

The Gunners’ have been criticised in recent weeks for playing three defensive midfielders and effectively starving supply to the strikers, particularly against on Monday.

The Hungarian typically plays in central midfield but can also play out wide on the left if required, versatility would only benefit and strengthen Arsenal’s resources. After a mature performance on Wednesday, the 19-year-old has a bright future.
