Arsenal could land a “dream signing” in Alexis Mac Allister, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke…
Speaking about Mac Allister to GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke claimed:
“He’d be a dream signing for a number of clubs, Mac Allister, following his performances at the World Cup for Argentina. He was outstanding for them in Qatar.”
If sporting director Edu Gaspar can seal a move for the pair of exciting young talents, then the Gunners are going to have the makings of a very good team for the next generation.
Mudryk’s quality and Arsenal’s admiration of him is well documented but Mac Allister has only really risen to stardom in the last 12 to 18 months, encapsulated by an outstanding campaign at the World Cup, where he was one of La Seleccion’s most influential players behind Lionel Messi.
Only the aforementioned ‘greatest of all time’ and Angel Di Maria registered a better Sofascore rating than the Brighton dynamo in their final win over France, where he was described as “running the midfield” by analyst Statman Dave.
Back in England, Mac Allister has bagged seven goals despite being deployed in a deeper engine room role, including a brace against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup over the weekend where his performance from the bench was further dubbed “absolutely ridiculous” by journalist Josh Bunting.
In terms of profile, FBref liken him to current Gunners star Thomas Partey, as well as another target in Youri Tielemans, so you’d imagine that would make him a perfect fit for Mikel Arteta and as such, just as O’Rourke states, it would make him something of a dream for the club.
The north London giants remain atop the Premier League standings but are at risk of everything coming crashing down if they do not bolster the playing squad with strength in depth, which is another reason why the likes of Mac Allister and Mudryk are players that must be signed, sooner rather than later.
Gabriel Jesus’ injury has heightened the need for a striker but Arteta is only an injury to Granit Xhaka or Bukayo Saka away from a further nightmare.
