Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit urges ex-club to sign Alexis Mac Allister


Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has urged his former club to raid Brighton to sign striker Alexis Mac Allister.

With Arsenal lacking depth in attacking areas, we could see Mikel Arteta make a move in the January transfer window.

Bukayo Saka’s coverage is minimal, although Brazilian winger Marquinhos has enjoyed an impressive start to his career, scoring in their Europa League draw this week.

Now the former Arsenal midfielder Petit has tipped his former club to sign Brighton striker Mac Allister in the January transfer window.

“If I were Edu I would make an offer for Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton – I really like him,” Petit said, speaking to Lord Ping (via the Mirror).

Mac Allister has played a slightly deeper role for Brighton this season so his versatility could make him hugely useful for Arsenal should he join the club.

The Argentina international was recently named Man of the Match in Brighton’s demolition of Leicester City, a game where he netted twice, including a stunning free-kick.

Mac Allister has scored six goals so far this season, and that kind of threat could make him a useful addition to Arsenal’s squad.
