Some Arsenal supporters would love to sign Diego Laxalt after Uruguay display

Uruguay defender Diego Laxalt caught the eye of many Arsenal supporters on Saturday night after he helped his country through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup with a win over Portugal.

Progressing after a 2-1 victory, Uruguay are now definitely in with a shout of winning the entire tournament after, with Laxalt clearly central to their ambitions moving forward.

The Genoa left-back produced an excellent performance throughout the 90 minutes last night, showing the kind of defensive solidity that has been lacking at the Gunners in recent seasons.

A regular for the Italian side with 34 starts last season, if some Arsenal fans get their way, he’ll be playing at the Emirates Stadium next season.

His industrious and determined style, along with his ability to move the ball forward is being touted as perfect for Unai Emery’s side, with competition on the left of defence needed next term.

These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on a potential switch after Saturday’s display…
