Arsenal Would Be Unwise to Miss Out on Ricky Alvarez
Reports today are that Roma have been readying a package of money send over to Velez Sarsfield in an attempt to bring over Ricky Alvarez. It was first reported about a month ago that Ricky Alvarez had signed a pre-contract with Arsenal but was then later disclosed that Velez would need 12 million pounds to bring over the Argentine Stud.
Roma have been readying a bid now that the Clausura is done and will look to bring him in in their attempt to win the Serie A. It would be a terrible career choice on his part and a terrible miss by Arsenal if things turn out like this.
Ricky Alvarez is tall, strong, has a late burst and makes really smart runs. He’s a great finisher and has a fantastic left foot. he’s somewhat similar to Javier Pastore who is now selling for 44 million…Why are Arsenal not investing in this guy! He’s a bit older than Pastore but he’s a great player and still has a lot of potential to unlock.
To miss out on a player of his potential would be unwise and as we look to add new players into the mix next year to actually win a trophy, we should be already securing this deal! Le Grove reported yesterday that we are definitely interested so it’s important that we do wrap this transfer up quickly and successfully…the price is a steal!
