51. Ignasi Miquel

Centre-back

 

Cultured Spanish U21 centre-back Ignasi gained further experience of professional football last season whilst on loan at Leicester City.

The tall youngster, who joined Arsenal in 2008 from Cornella, only made seven league appearances in the Championship, but returns to Arsenal this season hopeful of finally earning a place in the first-team squad.

Ignasi has made 14 appearances for the Arsenal first-team, featuring in all four major competitions, and scored his first goal for the club against Coventry City in 2012.

The Spanish U21 international, who spent some of his formative years at Barcelona, previously gained considerable experience of second-string football with Arsenal, having made his debut for the Reserve team whilst he was still a schoolboy.

Although he is a threat from set-pieces, Ignasi’s positioning still requires some work and he is vulnerable to quick counter-attacks.

    Ignasi was absolute class against Malaysi XI. I view him as next in line along with Lansbury in being promoted to the first team. If a premier league loan arises then that would be excellent, otherwise I would prefer he stay here and train with our squad and catch action when he can.

    I am missing something. Why is it that this kid does not seem to be getting the credit, I think he deserves. Is he not a better option then Monreal in defence. Educate me.
