Axel Witsel Reveals Dream of playing for Arsenal

Standard Liege has revealed that he is dreaming high, and dreaming of joining the Gunners in the coming summer transfer window.

The 22 year old Belgium player has apparently decided to make his next career move in the summer, having already spent five long years with the Belgian club. The Metro reports that both Liverpool FC and Arsenal are on the radar for the startlet, with Arsenal in the driving seat in the race for his signature.

I personally hope that this was his last season with Standard as he needs to grow and to do it he needs to leave the country.

He doesn’t have a specific target but he has a dream and it’s called Arsenal, but this doesn’t mean that he’s not open to other clubs.

Witsel’s father told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

The midfielder has hit the net 10 times for Standard Liege this season in 34 appearances and is seeking a move away from Belgium that would take him to one of the ‘bigger’ clubs. Fiorentina also approached Standard Liege over a move, however they were priced out after Standard were demanding 10 million euros from the Italian club.

Members of Liverpool FC’s scouting staff have been spotted at games in Liege, which probably signals a potential transfer move for the Belgian. Just 22, he fits the bill of being part of the ‘new, young, exciting players’ that Liverpool are intent on bringing in in the summer.
