Arteta Seeks A £19 Million "Assist Machine": The Best He Can Sign If Not Raphinha

Raphinha, a Leeds winger, is attracting a lot of interest this transfer window. Although Chelsea and Leeds have agreed on a deal for the Brazilian international, the transfer has yet to be completed because Raphinha has yet to say whether or not he wants the move. A situation that has given Arsenal and Barcelona hope in their pursuit of Raphinha before next season. 


However, while Arsenal continues to pursue Raphinha, there are reports that the club is considering other transfer options. 

According to Football Fan Cast, Noa Lang of Club Brugge is one player they are interested in and are even ready to sign.

As an informed Arsenal fan, you'll know that this isn't the first time Arsenal have been linked with the winger; they were also heavily linked with his services last summer. 

So, if Arsenal miss out on Raphinha, would Noa Lang be a better alternative? Personally, I believe that missing out on Raphinha would be a transfer setback, but Lang could be a good signing. The winger had 7 goals and 12 assists in 31 league games for Brugge, while Raphinha had 11 goals and 3 assists in 34 league games for Leeds. Lang has the potential to become Arsenal's new assist king. 


In terms of the transfer fee, a £19.5 million offer could persuade Brugge to sell the winger.
