From villain to hero has become Mikel Arteta’s career path following his move to managerial duties with Arsenal, and following a strong start to the season, Arteta according to Emmanuel Petit, now holds a huge bargaining chip over the Gunners in their transfer activity.
Emmanuel Petit, a former player for Arsenal, has urged his old team to sign Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo, two players who are reported targets for Chelsea before the January transfer window opens.
Allister and Caicedo, a current Brighton player, would comply with Mikel Arteta’s instructions in the middle, according to Petit.
According to Petit, both players would be excellent additions to the Gunners, as said to Mega Casino.
“I am a big fan of two players from Brighton: Alexis Mac Alister and Moises Caicedo. Mac Alister, I said this last season before he won the World Cup, he is a guy that does everything in the midfield. Technically, he is very good. He scores goals.
“The guy that sits next to him at Brighton, Caicedo, he’s excellent. If Arsenal could take both of those players, two guys who know each other, they would fit perfectly at the club. They would do everything that [Mikel] Arteta wants in midfield.”
