Arsenal now in talks to sign “scary” £56m “monster”, he could be Arteta’s own Haaland

Arsenal, similar to every other team in global soccer, desires a player of the caliber of Erling Haaland. Luckily, they might have a chance to acquire this player during upcoming summer, thanks to new transfer details that have emerged.

Latest on Rasmus Hojlund to Arsenal

According to 90min, it has been reported that Manchester United is interested in Atalanta’s young striker Rasmus Hojlund. 

However, it is later mentioned that several top European clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain, have shown interest in the forward after he expressed frustration over missing out on Champions League football. 

Talks have already commenced between these clubs and the player’s representatives and agent.

Atalanta is expected to demand a substantial fee to secure the 20-year-old from Bergamo. The asking price, which sporting director Edu Gaspar would need to pay, is believed to be around €65m (£56m).

How good is Rasmus Hojlund?

Due to their Scandinavian backgrounds and imposing, muscular physiques, both Haaland and Hojlund have had successful personal seasons, although one has stood out significantly more than the other.

It’s hard to find anyone who can match the incredible goal-scoring prowess of Manchester City’s key player, who has shattered numerous records with his astounding tally of 52 goals in all competitions. Standing at an impressive height of 6 foot 4, coupled with remarkable speed, he poses a terrifying threat to any defense he faces.

Despite being two years younger than Haaland, the Danish international has also displayed his ability to pose a threat to opponents. According to writer Sacha Pisani, he is remarkably fast despite his 6 foot 3 stature, earning him the label of “scary quick.” Additionally, scout Jacek Kulig has described him as “an absolute monster in the making” due to his impressive physicality at such a young age.

Having scored 15 goals and provided seven assists in various competitions, he has showcased his own knack for finishing, which would be a valuable addition to Mikel Arteta’s squad at Arsenal. Furthermore, it’s worth noting that he has already netted five goals for his national team in just four appearances.

Despite Pep Guardiola’s numerous tactical innovations throughout his career, one could argue that his most significant and straightforward decision came when he reintroduced a traditional number nine to his team for the current season. This adjustment has proven to be the missing element that could potentially lead to a memorable treble-winning campaign.

Drawing inspiration from his former mentor’s style of play, Arsenal’s manager could potentially aim to replicate the success of having a dominant striker who can overpower opposing center-backs. 

By surrounding this striker with talented players like Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Martin Odegaard, the venture could prove to be highly beneficial for all parties involved. 

With the support of these world-class stars in North London, Hojlund’s performance statistics are likely to soar.

In this scenario, the Danish prodigy has the potential to become Arsenal’s equivalent of the influential Erling Haaland, serving as their talismanic figure on the field.
