3 Players Arsenal should target in January to replace Granit Xhaka
#2 Emre Can (Juventus)
A lot was expected from Emre Can when he joined Juventus from Liverpool on a free transfer and while he did have a decent first season, things have not gone his way since Maurizio Sarri took charge of Juventus.
In his first season in Italy, he made a total of 37 appearances and this season he has just managed four appearances, of which three were from the bench and just one start. Things got worse for the German when Sarri decided not to include him in the Champions League squad.
Despite the way he is being treated at Juventus, there is no denying that Can is a top midfielder and we would fit in at any top club in Europe. The German international is one of the most underrated midfielders in the world. His tackling, dribbling, physical presence, ariel presence and through balls makes him an asset at both ends of the pitch.
Ever since Can was not included in the Champions League squad, there have been talks of him leaving the Serie A champions and those talks have intensified now. Clubs like Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United have reportedly shown an interest in him and Arsenal should get in the mix as well.
Having played in the Premier League for four years, Can will need no time to adapt and given his attributes at both ends of the pitch he would fit in perfectly in the heart of Arsenal's midfield who desperately needs someone like him.Published 14 Nov 2019, 16:36 IST
