Why Arsenal Should Consider Move For Bundesliga Forward

The 21-year-old German versatile forward can play out on the wings or in the middle, but with his current team, Hoffenheim, he has been playing mostly behind the striker. Perhaps at the moment, that is not a position Wenger is looking to reinforce, but the young talented player’s versatility and young age would be worth investing in. Technically, Volland can fit in with the likes of Özil, Walcott, Wilshere, Podolski, Cazorla and even Giroud spots.

His tender age allows him to still adapt to any attacking position, and therefore moving to Arsenal, rotating between attacking positions and developing until he finds his feet is most certainly a win-win proposition for him and the Gunners.

His performances at former club, Munich 1860, as well as for Germany’s youth teams, have opened the door to a Bundesliga move.  He is not Hoffenheim’s top scorer, and that is because he’s playing mostly behind the striker, but so far, his tally of five goals in 10 games this season is considered remarkable.

His playing style makes him a perfect fit for Arsenal. He possesses the agility, pace and technique that allow him to cut inside and open up space. He also has good vision that he uses often to create goal-scoring opportunities and a clinical finishing ability that is constantly improving.

Well, it seems to me that those attributes represent a small sample of the whole Arsenal front-line combined. 

If you haven’t seen him in action, then have a look at that short video. It might help a little.
