TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger admits he's a fan of Iranian Ostersund striker Saman Ghoddos.
Wenger was impressed by Ghoddos in the first-leg of their Europa League tie and talked him up ahead of Thursday's clash.
"The most impressive player in the first game was Ghoddos, who was a marvelous player technically, tactically," enthused Wenger.
"They are a team that plays good football. Do I want him on the team? We're not in the transfer period," he added.
"What is absolutely vital is we go into the game with a good focus to win it. It's a good opportunity for the players to show they have the quality to compete at this level," Wenger declared.
