Ansu Fati is going through a difficult season because of problems related to injuries. Most recently, the product from La Masia furnace suffered a left foot injury in the match against Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish King’s Cup. This injury was diagnosed seriously, so Barca wanted Fati on the operating table.
The Barca prodigy is more afraid of injury than ever
The final decision belongs to the young star born in 2002 and it seems that No. 10 Barca is pondering whether to have surgery or not. It is known that Fati’s father and agent Jorge Mendes will have a meeting with Barca to discuss this issue. With Fati, he seems to want Barca to give him more time to think.
Surgery is considered a conservative option as it is more likely to correct the problem, but it will keep the player out for a long period of time. Fati himself is also skeptical about this issue, so he does not want to miss any more football matches in a World Cup year.
Barcelona want the player to undergo surgery and doctors at the club explained the benefits and cons of that option to Fati on Monday, although it could force him out of action for three months. That was a relatively long time out, leaving Fati only able to participate in the final phase of the season.
Understandably to sympathize with the case of Fati. Fati’s first injury occurred on 7/11/2020 when he tore the meniscus in his left knee and required multiple surgeries. Then, on September 26, 2021, Fati only re-appeared when she overcame another health-related problem. Fati played only 10 matches in all competitions, a meager number for a mainstay at the Nou Camp.
The constant trauma, especially having just undergone major surgery, not long affected Fati’s psyche. This seems to be the problem that the “raw gem” at the Nou Camp faces. A difficult story for a player who is only 19 years old and in development.
Injury nightmares have been haunting Fati for nearly two years and this has not shown a remission. Obviously, Fati is facing a major decision in his career and the 19-year-old young man needs to carefully consider his decision.
Arsenal are increasingly out of breath in their efforts to recruit striker Dusan Vlahovic. And although Juventus does not have a strong financial potential like the Gunners, they still know how to convince the striker born in 2000.
Fiorentina director Daniele Pradé told the press recently: “Yes, we received an offer to buy Vlahovic in January, we are ready to sell. But we have not received any answer from us yet. his agent.”
“Juventus? The door is still open. We wait for Dusan to decide, we need answers,” added Pradé.
Meanwhile, well-informed journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed that Juventus will send an official offer to Fiorentina in a few hours and expect to get Vlahovic’s signature immediately.
This is exactly what the Serbian striker and his agent wanted, ie to stay in Serie A and join a team that has the opportunity to play regularly in the Champions League.
This will open a big turning point for Arsenal in the remaining days of January. They were forced to forget the name Vlahovic and look for another striker in Europe.
Like it or not, coach Mikel Arteta must also add a quality striker. Considering the teams in the top 6 Premier League, Arsenal is the team that has scored the fewest goals. And if they keep using Lacazette, Nketiah or Aubameyang in attack, maybe they will kick the top 4 dream of the Gunners BLD.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal had predicted the defeat in the Vlahovic deal, so they sought a plan B. Specifically, Arsenal approached Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak.
This player born in 1999 has performed quite impressively at the last EURO 2020. He is a striker with an ideal height (1m92) and has the ability to handle with his feet quite skillfully. Not coincidentally, people liken Isak to “the second Ibra”.
Everybody knows Isak’s great potential. He shoots well with both feet, has great technical background, is strong and full of speed,” said Amos Pieper of former teammate Isak’s strengths.
And even the former Barca striker has to give winged compliments to his junior when they focus on the team. “I’ve seen him play, he’s incredible,” said Ibra as he watched Isak play in 2016.
However, if put on the scale, Isak cannot compare with Vlahovic, at least in terms of parameters this season.The Serbian striker is with Ciro Immobile leading the list of goalscorers in Serie A (17 goals). Meanwhile, Isak has only pocketed 4 goals this season, despite playing a lot (playing 1217 minutes). In terms of gameplay contribution, Isak is also not very outstanding with only 0.09 xA (expected assists) per game.
Conceivably, Isak’s gameplay will somewhat simulate the style of Nketiah, the 1m92 high version. He is a good dribbler, turning great in a narrow area, but his finishing skills are a question mark this season.
In short, when Vlahovic’s signature was lost, Arsenal made it difficult for themselves in the top 4 race. In fact, Sociedad did not have a need to sell Isak urgently in the winter. If spending 90 million euros to break Isak’s contract, it would be better for the Gunners to offer a salary of 600,000 pounds/week to convince Kylian Mbappe in the summer. Of course, both are equally absurd so it can’t happen!
