Watch him stay injury free for the next 3 months, fill in when we have an injury crisis and earn a 3 year extension on Wenger’s socialist wage structure. Then he’ll get injured in January and we won’t see him for 2 years.
Pains me to say it given his background, love for the club etc. but we shouldn’t be extending his contract unless its some random as fuck “pay as you play” deal, which he won’t go for. No way should we be extending him on £100k/w or more(I imagine he is already on something similar, if not in excess of this).
Has more quality than Elneny and Coquelin but he’s not competing for their positions. He’s competing with Ramsey, Ozil and possibly at LW if we’re desperate.
He has quality but if he isn’t available to start 15 games a season then he’s a waste of squad space and financial resources.
