Bacary Sagna, former Manchester City and Arsenal player, believes that Chelsea’s Mason Mount will struggle to replace anyone in the current Arsenal lineup.

The 24-year-old has less than 18 months left on his current deal and could leave the club in the summer after contract talks ‘broke down.’
He currently has three goals and two assists in 23 Premier League games, which is a very low output for his standard compared to last season.

Arsenal are currently flying high at the moment. The Gunners lead the league with 66 points, five more than favourites Manchester City.
He Said, as quoted by TBR:
“I don’t see him playing ahead of any of the players in Arsenal’s starting eleven. I think he would purely be an addition and I don’t see him getting ahead of Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard or Gabriel Martinelli.
“I believe that Martinelli has more speed and more creativity and I don’t believe buying a player like Mason and putting him on the bench would be a good decision for the club.”
“They need to be smart and they need to bring in players that are content with sitting on the bench sometimes and being happy to share the time amongst the other players in their position.”
“That’s what Manchester City do, but I’ve been at Manchester City and it wasn’t always easy wanting to play and being stuck on the bench.”
“Does Mason have the mental qualities to come to Arsenal and sit on the bench? I’m not sure because I’m sure he’d want to play every week.”
