One of Arsenal’s top players said, “This guy has no limits; he’s too good and fires from every corner. He’s very smart, technical, dangerous, and very explosive. He’s exactly what we want at Arsenal.” After last night’s performance, Thierry Henry thinks he was surprised by the Champions League player Arsenal is secretly hoping to buy before January—not Mbappe or Xavi Simons.
The teenage player Arsenal hoped to sign this year surprised Thierry Henry.
The legendary Arsenal player Thierry Henry has given Warren Zaire-Emery of PSG, whom Mikel Arteta attempted to sign in January of this year, high praise.
The 17-year-old made his Champions League debut for the French champions against AC Milan last night, and he was fantastic. Henry, the idol of Arsenal and manager of France U21, was blown away by him and showered with praise on CBS Sports.
The French powerhouses defeated AC Milan 3-0 in their Champions League matchup last night.
Eight minutes after Kylian Mbappe’s first-half goal, Randal Kolo Muani extended their lead. Late in the contest, Kang-in Lee scored three goals to ensure the win.
Despite not scoring, Warren Zaire-Emery was the best player on the field. He had two assists and dominated the entire match.
Zaire-Emery is a player that Thierry Henry has experience with, having managed him on the France U21 squad. He raved about the 17-year-old on CBS Sports last night.
The well-known Frenchman said, “The way Warren Zaire-Emery is playing, it’s just normal to run the show (for a) 17-year-old.”
“He was the only one who could hold his own at St. James’ Park.” He’s been so good lately. There are no limits. I’ve never seen a player his age exhibit such maturity. I think this guy knows no limits.
This year, Arsenal expressed interest in signing him.
According to reports earlier this year, Arsenal expressed interest in buying Paris Saint-Germain’s Warren Zaire-Emery during the January transfer window.
The boy, who was only 16 at the time, was reportedly “especially insistent” on signing with the Gunners, according to RMC Sport.
PSG was correct to convince him to sign a new contract in the summer given there had been no activity in the winter window. His deal has been extended to the 2024–2025 season’s conclusion.
Zaire-Emery made a wise choice, and in the upcoming years, he will undoubtedly become a true superstar. It’s unfortunate that Arsenal was unable to sign him.
