Arsenal manager Unai Emery is said to ‘really appreciate’ Marseille star Florian Thauvin (Foot-Sur7).
The Frenchman has enjoyed another great season for the Ligue 1 club, registering 15 goals and seven assists so far.
Thauvin has reached new heights in his career since rejoining the club in 2016.
Thauvin struggled to thrive at Newcastle United and was initially loaned back to Marseille before making the move permanent in 2017.
Since then, Thauvin has developed into a completely different player and is now one of the most dangerous forwards in the French top-flight.
Last season he scored 22 goals in Ligue 1 and notched 12 assists, and in 2016/17 he scored 15 and assisted nine.
He has well and truly put his struggles at Newcastle behind him, and his form has alerted some big clubs.
Thauvin would vastly improve Arsenal’s attack, which is arguably missing one top player at the moment.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are both top class forwards, but the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi are simply not on the same level.
Thauvin would take Arsenal’s attack to the next level – the versatile attacker is comfortable playing on either wing and can even play centrally.
His is technically brilliant and is impressively productive in the final third
The Gunners will undoubtedly need the finances brought about by the Champions League if they are to afford him though, even if Marseille do expect to lose him this summer as claimed by Foot-Sur7.
