Are Arsenal Fans About To Witness The Emergence Of The New Yaya Toure In This Gunner?

A While back, Albert Sambi Lokonga's former coach at Anderlecht, Vincent Kompany, had this to say about the Gunner, "But the first thing I did when I saw Sambi is I went to Mikel and say, ‘You’ve got to watch this guy, he’s the new Yaya Toure.’ I still believe the same thing now. What I like about Sambi – and it’s rare in football, what Yaya did have – is he wants the ball no matter what."


Arsenal fans have yet to witness the Belgian's full potential, but with Mohammed Elneny out for months and Partey also set to miss weeks of action, Arteta may be forced to rely on him in midfield. The 22-year-old performed admirably against Aston Villa, and there's a chance he'll start again against United, laying the groundwork for him to stake a claim in Arteta's starting lineup.

Is Sambi Lokonga the next Yaya Toure on the rise?
