Anthony Martial

Arsenal are keenly interested in United’s star player Anthony Martial as reports claimed that Unai Emery is willing to lure the Frenchman to the Emirates stadium in the next transfer window.

Though Emery has many wingers in his team, the former Sevilla manager believes there is need to have at least two players in each position.

It was reported in August that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is equally interested in the 22-year-old, Emery is set to beat his North London rivals to the player’s signature.

How will the Frenchman add more quality to the Gunners starting lineup, should he eventually join the North London club in January.

As a right winger

Anthony Martial is a player with a lot of space and great shot accuracy, so, he could be deployed at the right wing of attack.

His inclusion to the position would surely be an upgrade to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who hasn’t really impressed since he joined the Gunners from Manchester United Last season.

As a left winger

As much as the former Monaco man isn’t a natural left-footed player, he could be deployed at the left flank of attack.

This means Unai Emery might have to drop Mkhitaryan from the starting lineup so as to push either Aubameyang or Lacazette to the right flank while the Frenchman operates from the left.

Centre-forward

Martial could be tested as the main striker, though, that hasn’t been his favourite playing position.

His impressive goalscoring ratio is so alarming that Emery could give him a look-in at the centre forward position as see how he performs.
