Bellerin issues stark Arsenal warning to Premier League rivals
Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has issued a stark warning to the other Premier League clubs following Arsenal’s January transfer business.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, the Spaniard claims that everyone knew Mesut Ozil would stay at the Emirates, creating an electric front four,
“I’m seeing the other players we have up front and even the players we have on the bench who can come on and you think obviously the creativity and electricity they bring into the team is something that is very rare to find in any other team,” Bellerin stated.
Arsene Wenger pulled off some magic by bringing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the club, creating a Borussia Dortmund reunion with fellow new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
This duo teamed up with Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette form one of the most intimidating attacking units in the league, and Bellerin reflects upon this in his interview,
“I think everyone already knew the quality and the capacity the new boys have, the potential. So we are very happy to have them, especially Auba after just a few days of training, he showed his worth.”
Arsenal seemed a club in free-fall prior to the Janaury window, with Alexis Sanchez leaving and Ozil still not signed to a new contract, many fans were claling for Arsene WEnger’s head.
However, the Gunners seem to have totally turned their season around, and after thrashing Everton 5-1 on the weekend, seem one of the teams-to-beat.
Amazingly, Arsenal now seem a better team than they did when they had Sanchez amongst their ranks.
In other Arsenal news, Olivier Giroud has spoken following his transfer to Chelsea, stating that it was the obvious club to join.
