For Emery, there can be no better player to replace Ramsey than Eggestein. Just like Ramsey, the midfielder is influential in bringing goals to the side. The youngster is as creative as the Welshman. The Werder Bremen star has got the potential to become a world class player in the upcoming years. The 22-year-old can act as a leader in Arsenal’s midfield and make it more solid.
