The former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has rated all Arsenal transfers this summer from Gabriel Jesus to Richarlison.
Arsenal has been very busy in the transfer market and has already confirmed the signing of three new players. The Gunners have signed Brazilian wonderkid Marquinhos from Sao Paulo, Matt Turner from New England Revolution from the MLS, and Fabio Vieira for £34 million from Porto.
Mikel Arteta is keen to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City as the Replacement for Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Here is Jack Wilshere’s rating of all Arsenal transfer targets this summer.
The former Arsenal midfielder was asked to rate all eight Arsenal transfer targets on talkSPORT EDGE out of 10.
1. Gabriel Jesus-Manchester City
“I think he would be a top, top signing. He’s a top striker and he’s obviously played in a top team for many years now.
“He knows the Premier League so he’s someone who could come in and fit in straight away. With Arsenal’s creative players, he would score a lot of goals – 10/10.”
2. Raheem Sterling-Manchester City
“He would be an unbelievable signing as well. He’s a London boy so it would be nice for him to come home and join the biggest team in London.
“Like Jesus, Sterling is someone who’s been in the Premier League for years and knows the Premier League. Under Mikel Arteta, I think he would be a very good signing, 100% – 10/10.”
3. Raphinha-Leeds United
“He’s someone who came to England and adapted straight away. That always shows the quality of a player because some players – even top players – take a little while to get to grips with the Premier League.
“He’s got a lot of experience in a short amount of time and was in a relegation battle last season. He’s one I would like to see at Arsenal – 9/10.”
4.Oleksandr Zinchenko-Manchester City
“He’s someone I really like. Mikel Arteta obviously worked with him at Man City so if Arsenal wants him, there’s a reason.
“Arsenal are pretty strong in that area with Kieran Tierney so I wouldn’t say we really, really need him. But we’ve seen Zinchenko play in midfield for Ukraine so he can adapt to different positions and he’s versatile. ‘If I saw him come to Arsenal I would be happy with that – 9/10.”
5. Tammy Abraham-AS Roma
“Tammy was linked with Arsenal before he went to Roma. He picked Roma and it’s worked out for him. He’s done really well and he’s getting chances for England now.
“If he was to come back to England I’d hope Arsenal were the first team after him because he knows the league. I would definitely go for him – 10/10.”
6. Ruben Neves-Wolverhampton
“I definitely think he has the quality to play for Arsenal. You can see his technical ability and the way he can pass and score from outside the box.
“Arsenal is pretty strong in midfield at the minute but he would definitely improve the squad – 8/10.”
7. Youri Tielemans-Leicester City
“I think Neves is more of a technician whereas with Tielemans you get a bit more drive and energy going forward.
“If I was going to pick one to go to Arsenal, looking at our midfield and what we could add to improve it, I’d probably go for Tielemans – 9/10.”
“Richarlison is a strange one. I think he’s a top, top player. There’s obviously something there but he’s had his problems on the pitch.
“He’s a little bit petulant and immature. Sometimes I quite like that, it shows he cares and is passionate. ‘I think he deserves his chance at a top club. I would actually quite like to see him at Arsenal under the guidance of Mikel Arteta – 8/10.”
