‘Currently, We Don’t Have A Player Like Him’-Arteta Follows Wenger’s Philosophy In Next Signing

. Arsenal News Transfer: When Mikel Arteta makes his next signing for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger will have had a significant role in the decision. Arsenal is close to finalizing the transfer of Fabio Vieira to their club from FC Porto in exchange for a price of £34m. 

After the success of Martin Odegaard, who is now the primary source of creativity for Arsenal, many supporters were taken aback by this signing. A creative midfielder did not seem to be on the wishlist for the north London club to pursue during this campaign. [ Arsenal News Transfer ]

However, throughout his time as manager of Arsenal, Wenger demonstrated how important it is to have several players on the field. Players, who have the technical ability to generate scoring opportunities. Arteta’s emphasis on re-establishing the Wenger culture at Arsenal may be one of the reasons why Fabio Vieira is on the verge of being signed by the club. [ Arsenal News Transfer ]

Arsenal News Transfer: What did Mikel Arteta say?

Arteta made the following statement while discussing the significance of technical midfielders: “Look at the players we had in the past at this club in such positions. (Santi) Cazorla, (Tomas) Rosicky, (Andrey) Arshavin, (Aaron) Ramsey, (Henrikh) Mkhitaryan, and (Jack) Wilshere were all part of the team at that moment.

There are currently no members in the club that fit this description. We really have to get back on track with this process because. Or else, Arsenal won’t have any more players with these skills.”

In that comment, Arteta mentions five different players who joined the club when Wenger was serving as manager. Those five players were all acquired by the club during Wenger’s tenure. This demonstrates the model that Arteta is trying to pursue. The Spaniard is now trying to bring in another talented midfielder in the form of Vieira to complement Odegaard.

Arteta has already shown interest in carrying on Wenger’s legacy at Arsenal. This may be a motivating factor in the club’s pursuit of Vieira as a player. In November, when attending the screening of the film on Arsene Wenger, Arteta made the following statement: “I would want to recover a lot of things that he accomplished, and I would like him to be more present at the club. I believe that the players would adore him. They would benefit from having him about, that he would motivate them. It would be a big lift for the club if he were there.”
