Arsenal are interested in signing talented Nice midfielder Vincent Koziello, according to reports.
Our club have a policy of signing young players who we help develop into fine footballers under the tutelage of Arsenal Wenger.
However, that has changed in the last couple of seasons with Wenger focusing more on established players. The likes of Petr Cech, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Perez have joined the club in the last two years but reports in France claim Wenger wants to sign 20-year-old Nice midfielder Koziello.
Le10sport via HITC Sport claims Koziello is high on Wenger’s wish list and we could make a move for him in the future.
Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis recently revealed that we will revert to our principle of signing talented young players with the aim of nurturing them into top players and it appears we are already working on that.
We currently have a lot of players in the midfield area so a move for a talented player like Koziello who still needs time to develop into a top player makes so much sense.
However, signing talented young players has its own disadvantages, not all of them go on to fulfill their potentials due to different reasons, making it risky to invest in them. Whichever path Koziello’s career is going to take, no one can tell but we can only hope it is worth the risk.
