Not being funny but our ‘saviour’ could very well be this guy:
At least he can play in EL to rest some players like Xhaka. He’s also not as young as one would think - he’s 22 in a few months and last season played 50 games in a proper men’s league in League 1 last year.
Ricky or anyone that watches our youth football what you think about this guy?
In Areta’s press conference he said he would look at academy players if he has to. Most of the good ones like Balogun and Flores have gone on loan but wondering if there are any out there that we can promote to the first team? That Romanian kid looked good and plays in central midfield…
Also think Nelson will get plenty of opportunities when he’s back fit. Maybe we were lucky with his injury as otherwise he would have been either sold or sent on loan too!
Basically we need a youngster from the academy to have a Saka 2018/2019 or ESR 2019/2020 breakthrough as it would really help with our squad depth.
