Coming fresh from his birthday and a 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich, prior to Everton clash, Arsene Wenger has some special words of praise for Ross Barkley. Barkley is often touted as England’s next big thing. The player is blessed with physicality and technicality along with pace, vision. He can play as CM, an attacking midfielder and a winger. His composure, control, ability to link up play and accurate passing make him a special talent. In the injury-prone Arsenal team, a player of his calibre will certainly add impetus.
Wenger has said Barkley has the potential to become a world-class talent. “He has massive potential because he has a good combination of technical qualities and physical qualities,” said Wenger. “He has the absolute power of the modern player and he’s certainly one of the most promising. He’s 21 years old and is a regular player in the national team. Such an early run is always a special talent,” added Wenger.
Looks certain like Wenger is eyeing him. Next summer target? probably yes, time will tell.
