Edu could make a bigger bargain than Martinelli at Arsenal

Arsenal have spent a good amount of money in recent seasons.

Nicolas Pepe came to North London for a club record of £ 72 million in the summer of 2019, while they also squandered £ 45 million on bringing in Thomas Pepe from Atlético de Madrid last month.

But it could be argued that Arsenal’s best transfer business in the post-Arsene Wenger era has been the signing of Gabriel Martinelli for £ 6m in 2018.

The 19-year-old Brazilian forward has missed most of this year through injury, but considering that Jurgen Klopp called him a talent of the century in 2019, one could argue that the youngster is going places and for £ 6 million, what a steal. absolute. .

But if Arsenal end up signing Dominik Szoboszlai, it could be a bigger bargain than Martinelli.

That’s because Szoboszlai, just a year older than the South American, made headlines again for astonishing reasons this week after his brilliant last-minute solo goal to lead Hungary to Euro 2021 on Thursday night.

For his club, Red Bull Salzburg, the 20-year-old has five goals and nine assists in all competitions this season, including another World Cup in the Champions League.

And surprisingly, the youngster has a £ 23 million release clause in his contract, peanuts even in this day and age.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal are in talks with the Austrian team to bring him to the Emirates Stadium, but there will surely be a lot of competition.

But the bottom line, if Edu signs it, it will be another absolute deal, relative to price, and it very well could end up being more valuable than Martinelli for years to come.
