Arsenal fans urge club to sign Bouna Sarr after Europa League final display

Marseille right-back Bouna Sarr impressed for his side despite their 3-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League final on Wednesday night, and Arsenal fans have urged their club to sign the defender.

It was always going to be a difficult task for the Ligue 1 outfit against Diego Simeone’s men, and it proved to be the case although 26-year-old Sarr put in an impressive display from both a defensive and attacking point of view.

The Frenchman, who has won 90 of the 118 tackles he has made in 43 appearances in all competitions this term according to WhoScored.com, showed that he is more than capable defensively, while he also showed that he can get forward and help his team in the final third too, suggested he could give Hector Bellerin some much-needed competition for a spot in the starting XI at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal supporters, who hope prospective new boss Mikel Arteta would help one of their £20,000-a-week stars improve, were quick to have their say on Sarr’s performance via social media, and while one said “Sarr is what we want Bellerin to be”, another said “I will take Sarr over Bellerin any day”.
