Alessio Da Cruz, the Novara Calcio winger cum forward is in the top of the wish list of two Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool in the next transfer window.The Gunners are currently in the leading position to sign the wonderkid from Novara Calcio. Liverpool club management are also scouting this player closely.
Alessio Da Cruz was first brought into limelight by Ajax from a local match and after changing so many clubs he joined the Eredivisie Club Twente. He played his first match in Eredivisie in 2015-16 season against ADO Den Haag coming as a substitute of Bruno Uvini at half-time in a 1–4 home defeat.
The player was sent to serve a loan period to FC Dordrecht before being released in the summer transfer window of 2017-18 season.
The 20 year old winger joined Novara Calcio, a Serie B side without much expectations bound on him this season. But his starting days at Novara has kept him in all eyes of Novara fans. The winger has been already involved in 5 goals and 2 assists for Novara Calcio in his 18 appearances this season.
This season is going to be his first full fledged season and he is trying to make it count to get a chance to play for the big guns of Europe.
The player is heavily linked with the Club management of Arsenal and that’s not a big deal of surprise as Arsene Wenger needs to add to his options on the wing and the 20-year-old could be a real dark horse, if he does end up arriving at Emirates.
The other side of the transfer rumour is slightly different. Liverpool are scouting the winger as a viable addition to the squad, mostly as a backup to the already available options at Klopp’s hands.
If we try to compare both the sides of the transfer rumour, the winger is most likely to join the Gunners in the next transfer window as Arsenal are lacking options in the wing recent days and the chance to get into the first eleven of Arsenal might be easier for him if Alexis Sanchez leaves Arsenal next season.
According to the reports, the winger is on his way towards the Emirates Stadium as the Club management of Arsenal is closely monitoring the whole situation and trying to finalize the move in the next summer transfer window.
But there remains still a doubt for the football pundits and the Arsenal fans for the wonderkid of Novara Calcio. In terms of competitiveness and physicality Premier League stands in much higher position than Serie B.
The adaptability of the player in the new situation will be a real thing to watch out for the Arsenal fans. But big players always have the temperament to develop into the new condition.
If Alessio Da Cruz really have the potential he will surely shine in the Premier League and the Arsenal fans will witness the birth of a new hero at the Emirates. Arsenal have recently beaten AC Milan with a margin of 2-0 in the first leg of round of 16 clash of Europa League.
