“I like what he is doing,” said Wenger. “He has individual quality in one-on-ones, but he has improved a lot in his team play and in front of goal. He has started scoring goals with both feet, and is a great crosser of the ball. Personally I think he has developed his game in an extraordinary way.”
Wenger then went on to liken him to Cristiano Ronaldo, who was named the best player in the world when at United.
“He has something like that about him. He is a little bit less direct in his way of playing than Ronaldo is. However, he is technically a virtuoso and has remarkable speed.”
