Arsenal urged to sign player who had a ‘very bad season’ when last in Premier League

Arsenal have been urged to sign a player who was considered to be a huge disappointment and a rather large flop the last time he played in the Premier League.

Of course, it would be unfair to tarnish Renato Sanches with that same brush now compared to the one that can be used to describe his time at Swansea City, with the player clearly having matured and gotten back to the individual that looks as impressive as he was that got many excited.

There is no doubt that he has had a rollercoaster of a career, with the player enjoying two winning Bundesliga title campaigns with Bayern Munich, before hitting rock-bottom with Swansea. He then managed to return to glory with Lille last season as he won the French Ligue 1 and has since salvaged his reputation. With all that happening, he might want to give an online casino a go as he might land a fortune!

Indeed, the Premier League proved to be a little too much at the time for the midfielder, as the 12 league appearances he made in 2017/18 were in a year where the Welsh outfit really struggled and were condemned to Championship football.

The manager at the time, Carlos Carvalhal, then stated that Sanches had a ‘very bad season’ and had ‘much to learn’ after the loan spell ended, but it seems that he could make a return to England’s top league with Arsenal being urged to be the side to make it happen.

After an impressive 29 appearances for Lille last season, he attracted a number of names including the Gunners, Liverpool and AC Milan, with the Portuguese international admitting that he is ‘ready’ to move to one of Europe’s elite clubs now.

Campbell believes Arsenal should be looking to do all the can to get the 24-year-old, claiming he would be a ‘very good signing’ and would add experience to Mikel Arteta’s side.

‘I think he would be very good if they can get him in,’ Campbell told Football Insider.

‘He’s suffered with injuries but he’s still young. He’s a powerhouse in that midfield – he can pick the ball up, run, he can shoot, he can create.

‘Having that power in the midfield can make a huge difference.

‘No disrespect to him but against Liverpool, for example, Sambi Lokonga was taken off by Arteta to save him. He was getting robbed time after time in that midfield.

‘Maybe there needs to be a bit more experience in there, and Sanches would bring it.

‘There’s a big opportunity for Arsenal – they’re still fifth in the table. They will be trying to improve the top end of the pitch and pushing for those top four places.’

With the player’s contract set to expire in the summer, Arsenal are understood to have told Sanches’ representatives of their interest, whilst Lille are also thought to be in the know and could be prepared to cash in on him in the winter transfer window. Instead of selling him, they might want to try machines à sous en ligne instead and raise funds that way.

The problem that Arteta could have if he signs the player is in trying to keep his midfield happy, as he has Thomas Partey, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Mohamed Elneny already available.

Additionally, Granit Xhaka will likely come back into the fold in the New Year once he returns from the knee injury he suffered, although January could be a tough month for the Gunners as both Partey and Elneny will be required to go on international duty and represent their nations at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
