If you believe reports in the English and German media today, Borussia Dortmund scout Sven Mislintat has agreed to join Arsenal and will commence work for the club in the summer. The signing of the German could lead to Arsenal signing a couple of German-based players. According to various reports, Sven Mislintat is well grounded in Germany, which could be very useful for the Gunners.
Some of the players we reckon could follow Sven Mislintat to Arsenal are as follows:
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: What a signing the Gabon international would be for Arsenal. And the good thing is that Arsene Wenger seems to like him, as the Borussia Dortmund striker has been linked with a move to the Emirates a couple of times now. With Alexis Sanchez expected to leave North London next summer, if not in January, Aubameyang would be a perfect replacement for the Chilean. However, Arsenal could face competition from Chelsea and AC Milan for the signature of the African star, but the presence of Sven Mislintat could decide the transfer in Arsenal’s favour. Last summer Aubameyang was linked with a move to Chelsea, with Borussia Dortmund said to be ready to sell for £61.6 million. I believe a bid in that region from Arsenal next summer could fetch them the former AC Milan youth.
Christian Pulisic: The young American is another player I think Arsenal have a chance of signing and certainly could do with. Theo Walcott has been very poor for Arsenal this season and it will be a big surprise if he is not sold next summer. Christian Pulisic could well be the perfect replacement for the former Southampton forward. The fact that the USA international can play on both wings and centrally means, unlike Walcott, he will get ample playing time with the Gunners should he sign for them.
Julian Draxler: The 2014 World Cup winner has been constantly linked with a move to Arsenal over the last three or four transfer windows. Borussia Dortmund were also linked with his signing last summer; an indication that Sven Mislintat, who is their chief scout, has watched him and been convinced by his abilities. Dortmund reportedly saw Draxler as the ideal replacement for Ousmane Dembele, who was sold to Barcelona last summer. Maybe Mislintat could also help Arsenal beat Dortmund to the signing of the player next summer?
