Arsenal have been brilliant in the attacking third this season and currently, they are the the joint leading goalscorers in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger has got more than a few quality attacking players in his squad but he needs more depth to challenge the best of teams next season.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Gunners have the chance to sign Wolves’s star playmaker Helder Costa.
According to the Sun, the Championship side are ready to offload the 23-year-old Portuguese international and the Emirates club are keen to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.
The former Benfica attacker has been in brilliant form this season. In 28 starts (all competitions), Costa has directly contributed in no fewer than 18 goals (10 goals and 8 assists). He is mainly a right winger but can play as a central attacking midfielder and also as a center forward if needed.
Wolves recently completed his permanent signing and manager Paul Lambert heavily praised him by stating (Express):
“He’s worth it and I think he will be a massive asset. In time that will be buttons to what his value will be. If Helder produces what he has been producing then he’s a threat without a doubt. He’s a threat whoever he plays against.”
“The great thing about him is that he plays with a smile on his face. You never see him not smiling, on the pitch and off it and in his training. He likes a laugh and he’s one of those guys who has incredible talent and really quick feet.”
The major issue is that Wolves are 20th in the league and as per the provided Sun link, they may have to sell their prized asset, Helder’s agents are also pushing for a PL move.
Costa was influential in helping Wolves defeat Liverpool in the FA Cup. In your opinion, should Arsenal splash the cash to sign him?
