2. Bruno Fuchs

Bruno Fuchs‘ name launched into the transfer spectrum pretty quickly and hung around easily for one big reason—he’s Brazilian.

More from Pain in the Arsenal

Ever since Edu joined the club, he’s been tapping into the Brazilian talent factory that so has gone neglected at the Emirates for far too long. It started with Gabriel Martinelli and given how quickly he caught on, it only makes sense that 21-year-old Bruno Fuchs is so highly sought after.

He’s got the physical talent, he’s got the on-the-ball talent, he just hasn’t ventured into European football yet. Which, at 21, might seem a little bit of a put-off, but that’s why he only costs pocket change. And like I said, if Martinelli worked so well, who’s to say Fuchs couldn’t do the same?

Fuchs is one for the future, like a few of our other guys. But with so many young talents floating around, rotating them in and out helps everyone.

A very attractive No. 1 coming up next.
