With a £35 million Premier League raid, Arteta can unleash his own Iniesta.
I know you don’t know him, but if you asked Alarina about Brighton’s midfielder Alexis MacAllister, he’d probably tell you he’s like Barcelona’s Andreas Iniesta. In a tweet on the 18th of December, the football fan tweeted, “Macallister moves sooo much like Messi. Reminds me of Iniesta.” I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m giving you so much information about the Brighton Man. Well, almost every club wants a piece of MacAllister after his masterclass performance for Argentina in the FIFA World Cup, which helped Argentina win the Jules Rimet Trophy.
TBR reports that Arsenal can persuade Brighton to sell the 24-year-old midfielder, whom few were aware of prior to the World Cup, for £35 million. Although £35 million may not be too much for Arsenal, TBR claims that the deal may not be preferred by the Seagulls in the upcoming transfer window and thus may be one for the summer. With Arsenal in a strong position to win the Premier League, pulling off a Leicester 2015-16 title steal this season could sway the next Iniesta to the Emirates.
