Gilberto Silva gives Mikel Arteta transfer direction


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has been advised by the club’s legend, Gilberto Silva to move in for the signature of Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish in the future.

Jack Grealish is being linked with a move to Chelsea and Man United. There were speculations that he would join the Red Devils in the last summer transfer window but he remained with his club.

The North London outfit have not been linked with Jack Grealish before now but the former midfielder, who spoke on The Invisible Wall Show (Via Goal), claims he is a player that will fit into the Arsenal system.

Gilberto Silva seems to be a big fan of the Aston Villa midfielder, having been impressed by his performance over the years. He is positive that he is the type of player his former club should be looking at.

Jack Grealish has scored four goals and provided five assists in the Premier League this season, and the Brazilian believes that he has all the attributes to be a great player at the Emirates Stadium.

“Grealish, amazing. It seems like he could be a player that Arsenal missed. With his ability, he was one of the guys in the middle who can play beautiful football. He controls the ball, assists, and can score goals.

“He is slightly different from Dennis Bergkamp, but he could be somebody for the future at Arsenal.”

Meanwhile, Gilberto Silva isn’t the first ex-player to tip Grealish for a big move, and he won’t be the last but it is left for the Gunners to look his direction and consider him.

Howbeit, the setup at the midfield in the current Arsenal team will make it difficult for Adrenal to invest on him as they are only seeking for a goal scoring and creative midfielder with Lyon star Houssem Aouar as the top target.
