in a recent interview Bollinger News, Wolfsburg striker Jonas Wind claims to want to play for Arsenal in the future. The Danish striker called Arsenal a “dream destination” and said:
“If we look to the future, Arsenal would be my dream destination because they have always been my favorite club. Overall, I think the Premier League is the best league in the world and it would be great to play there. People are excited.
“But like I said, that’s not my goal right now. I’m fine at Wolfsburg, it’s a good club for me, the Bundesliga is a big league. Right now I’m just focusing on my performance here and then we’ll see if I’m good enough to take the next step at some point in the future.
Wind’s impressive campaign in German football
Wind has had a good season in the Bundesliga recently after joining FC Copenhagen in January. So far, the 23-year-old has scored five goals and provided one assist in 16 Bundesliga appearances for Wolfsburg.
The Danish international leads his side in the 2021-22 Bundesliga with 2.6 shots on goal, 1.1 assists and 0.7 dribbles per 90 minutes. ball from behind (data from score).
The Hvidovre-born talent is currently under contract with Wolfsburg in the summer of 2026. So if Arsenal decide to make a move for him in the future, they’ll have to make a big offer.
Should Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta move to Wind this summer?
Wind can use his strong height of 1.90m to control opposing central defenders in the air and is good at creating space for himself to take a few shots.
The Danish striker has the vision to create good chances for his teammates in the final third and can also perform some smart runs with the ball deep in the opposition half. However, he needs to work on improving his top lane connection.
Still, the pros of signing Wind outweigh the cons. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is therefore likely to consider making a splash with Denmark when the transfer window reopens in January this year or at the end of the season. As long as the Gunners are ready to play him regularly over the next few seasons, he has what it takes to become a future star for the North London club.
