Arsenal could get their hands on an impressive Feyenoord winger for a mere fee of £12.5 million. Corriere Dello Sport reports that the Gunners are tracking the Dutch side’s Luis Sinisterra. The Colombian has delivered quite decent performances for Feyenoord this season. Moreover, the winger has shown consistent improvement over the last couple of seasons. As a result, Sinisterra has attracted the attention of the North Londoners.
Arsenal and Mikel Arteta are ready to bolster their squad in the summer. The manager has immensely revamped the club from their last season’s debacles. Arsenal now has the chance to qualify for the Champions League as well, prompting the club to reinforce its ranks in the summer.
A natural left-winger, Sinisterra is in quite a brilliant form this season. The Colombian was instrumental in Feyenoord qualifying for the UEFA Conference League. His exploits with the Eredivisie club have earned him 4 international caps as well. However, Arsenal isn’t the only one monitoring the Feyenoord youngster. Corriere Dello Sport has further mentioned that three more clubs have tabled their offers for Sinisterra.
Arsenal enter the race for Feyenoord winger
Sinisterra is being chased by a lot of clubs apart from the Gunners. His stats and displays speak volumes for his demand in the market. The Colombian has scored a massive 18 goals in 38 games for Feyenoord this season in all competitions. Furthermore, Sinisterra has chipped in with 11 assists as well, taking his goal contribution to 29 in 38 appearances.
The Arsenal target’s 5 goals and 3 assists in UEFA Conference League qualifiers helped Feyenoord make the cur for the tournament. His heroics have continued in the Conference League, with 3 goals and as many assists in 7 games. But his league output has been staggeringly outstanding this term. So far in his 24 league games, Sinisterra has achieved a 70% dribble success rate and 2.2 key passes per game. Moreover, he has a 68.9% tackle success rate, which is quite exceptional for a winger.
A winger who boasts an xG of 7.8, has offers from Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, and Napoli along with the gunners. All the clubs have submitted their offers for Sinisterra, who has a price tag of £12.5 million put on by Feyenoord. But the youngster is respecting his current employers and has refused to hold talks with any of the interested parties mid-way through the season.
Arsenal has a fantastic opportunity here if they sign the Feyenoord star for £12.5 million. The risk is quite affordable and could present Arteta with a quality depth in attack. Though Martinelli seems to be a formidable force on the left wing for Arsenal, Sinisterra could provide healthy competition to the Brazilian.
Furthermore, Arteta is developing a prodigious young squad brimming with exceptional qualities. Among other clubs who have bid for Sinisterra, Arsenal seems the best possible club for the Feyenoord player to take his game to the next level.
