Gilberto Silva has said on his Incredible Wall podcast that Aston Villa star Jack Grealish would be a good signing for Arsenal in the future.
The Arsenal legend believes that the Gunners should have made a move for the England international attacking midfielder in the summer of 2020.
Silva was impressed by the display produced by the 25-year-old during Villa’s 3-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in North London in the Premier League last weekend.
“Grealish, amazing,” Silva said on his Incredible Wall podcast. “It seems like he could be a player that Arsenal missed. With his ability, in the middle, he plays beautiful football.
“He controls the ball, assists and can score goals. He is slightly different from Dennis Bergkamp, but he could be somebody for the future at Arsenal.”
