Paul Merson the former Arsenal player and current Sky Sports pundit believes the Argentine should make the move downs south to London and his former club, Arsenal football club.

Paul Merson was speaking on Sky Sports and believes Arsenal would be a perfect fit for Aguero;

“Will he stay in England or will his next move be abroad? If he stays in England, I think Arsenal would suit the style he would be looking for. They’d be a good choice,” Merson said.

“Mikel Arteta was at Manchester City and the way Arsenal play; they get around the box and they do create a lot of opportunities. Arsenal do tick that box for Aguero.”

“There won’t be many clubs who wouldn’t want a player of Aguero’s stature. However, clubs will be looking at his injury record and at their wage bills,” Merson commented.

“It will also come down to Aguero too because he’ll have to be in a team that creates chances. If you are not getting in and around the opponent’s penalty area too often, then it would be difficult to have Aguero in your team.

“He’s not getting the ball on the halfway line and beating three players anymore. That’s not his game anymore.

“We’ve seen some special goals from him where he’s scored from nothing, but he’s had injuries and is getting on a bit, so I don’t see that happening too often anymore.”
