He has been a key figure in the midfield for Unai Emery this season. Merson points out on the development and improvement of the Brazilian over the recent years.

He can sit as a holding midfielder and mop things up for his team but he also gets in the box and scores goals – as we’ve seen so often this season. With Casemiro and Fabinho past their best in recent seasons, the ex-Manchester City midfielder could also become a key player for Brazil in the years ahead.”
