Unai Nunez has been the talk of the town this week. He is seen as a partner for Saliba for Arsenal in the next season for Barclays Premier League. He is the cheapest alternative for the Arsenal team which could fit in the squad.
There have been some talks around it but he has not yet come to an agreement of joining. A few months back he was being connected with the Everton but due to lack of game time, he was at bay. This move-in January was expected on the sidelines.
Arsenal has been really interested in signing Nunez from the past month now and the defender has also rejected the offers from the other teams. It is the right time for the Arsenal to make a move now.
William Saliba is set to make a comeback this summer and it is anticipated that he will be a certain starter under the leadership of Mikel Arteta. With Saliba coming back in Center Back position Nunez could be a great partner in the form of the defender for him.
All in all, Nunez could be the smartest buy for Arsenal this year not in terms of price only but also in terms of his defending capabilities. The Stats of man from Spain speaks for itself, he is having an average of 1.3 interception per game which is way more than of both David Luiz and Sokratis. His excellent stats don’t stop here, as he also outdoes both in clearances too with an average of 4.3 per match.
He is an asset for any team he plays for with all the capabilities he is having in his game and statistics speak for it too. So, he could be a definitive buy for the Arsenal for next season and he can fill in the slot of Centre Back which has been left vacant for a while now.
