The German World Cup Superstar On His Way To Arsenal

By timgarrett IN Premier League,Transfers - 19:30 Jun 13th 2018
 

Arsenal may be at the beginning of a new and exciting era under Unai Emery, but there is a growing concern that the Emirates outfit are already being left behind by their Premier League rivals.

Big signings are required every summer for teams wishing to compete at the top end of the English game and, while Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have all already secured major signatures during this window, the Gunners have thus far only added experienced Switzerland international Stephan Lichtsteiner.

More movement is needed, and fast.

Fortunately, however, reports in Germany suggest that negotiations regarding a proven performer are progressing well. Bayern Munich and Germany’s Sebastian Rudy is the man in question, and some suggest he could even complete a move to North London before kicking off his World Cup campaign on Sunday.

The fact that Bayern, generally speaking, do not make a habit of selling key players may lead some to assume that Rudy was simply a bit-part player at the Allianz Arena, but last season’s stats suggest otherwise:

Rudy appeared in 25 of Bayern’s 34 Bundesliga outings last term, and the improvement in the team’s performances when he was on the pitch is clear for all to see.

Average goals per game soared from 1.9 to 3.0, highlighting just how much license he gives attacking players to roam while he covers ground and goals against remained very stable regardless.

What Arsenal need as they aim to climb back into the Premier League’s top 4 is wins, and here Rudy can deliver. Despite the galaxy of stars in their squad, Bayern won more often with Rudy than without, highlighting just how important he was.

Versatile and defensive disciplined, Rudy could be exactly what’s needed in an Arsenal squad that has often been accused of lacking concentration at the back. His transfer may not be a cheap one but, should it come to fruition, it’s easy to see him slotting into the side and making an immediate impact.

    Bonaroca :- I am not against Arsenal getting new players for the coming season with this new manager, but I feel that to much emphasis seems to depend on foreign players. I hope that the new manager from time to time start picking up English born players particularly from the academy..

    When one realises that Arsenal had eight players representing England against Italy in an international match (Res 3 – 2) it makes me sick that there
    is only one player representing Arsenal.today have only one player makes me sick. I always hope that this could be remedied. At the end of the day
    a real arsenal supporter this is really a great Arsenal wit British Lads
