Brad Friedel has warned Arsenal that January transfer target Facundo Torres may need some time to adjust to life in the Premier League..
Despite Arsenal’s commanding position at the top of the Premier League, Mikel Arteta understands that he must continue to strengthen his squad in order to improve.
There is a widespread belief that if Arsenal sustains a couple of injuries, they will be unable to maintain their winning ways because their squad is not as deep as that of some of their top four rivals, leading to speculation that Torres is a player they wish to sign..
Torres has ten goals and 13 assists in Major League Soccer this season, and his performance has piqued the interest of many big clubs.
But, amid reports that Arsenal are interested in Torres, Brad Friedel has warned the Gunners that it may take some time for Torres to adjust to the Premier League’s standard.
Friedel claimed, “I’ve seen a lot of Torres.” “He’s very good in the attacking third, but he’s not particularly tall.”
“Mikel Arteta has done an excellent job in the transfer market, getting rid of players who do not fit the style..
Torres has a lot of end product, but I believe it will take him a long time to adjust to the speed and physicality of the Premier League.
“The MLS is very back and forth a lot of the time, so I’m not sure if he’d be an immediate starter, but he’s a talented boy to be sure.”
