Former Aston villa maestro recommends Ndidi to Arsenal

Super Eagles
midfielder
Wilfred Ndidi
will be a good
fit for Arsenal
as a perfect
replacement
for Lucas
Torreira who
pulled up with
a muscle
injury in
Saturday’s 1-1
draw against
Crystal Palace
at the Selhurst Park according to former Aston Villa
forward Gabriel Agbolonhalor.
Ndidi is himself down with a minor injury and is
expected to be out until February.
Agbolanhor born of Nigerian parents refused to play
for his fatherland when the Nigeria Football Federation
wanted to have him play for the Super Eagles.
In quotes carried by the Daily Star making reference to
Stadium Astro, a programme in the UK that covers
international sports events like the English Premier
League and other international competitions,
Agbolanhor said of the Uruguayan:
“I don’t think he’s the player that’s going to take
Arsenal to that next step. Arteta will look at him and
think he can do a job now.
“But when the summer comes he may be looking for
someone with more legs, someone better. He’s good
for now but I think that’s because Arteta can’t buy
any players in January.
“For the players available, I think Torreira’s the best
option he’s got.”
Ndidi has played 20 English Premier League matches
this season, one more than the Arsenal midfield
maestro.
