Nottingham Forest have knocked another Premier League side out of the FA Cup. This time, their victim is Leicester City. Djed Spence was the one who scored the final goal of the match. Spence’s performance was later described by former striker Ian Wright as ‘unbelievable’.

Meanwhile, Martin Keown advised Mikel Arteta to go after Djed Spence, comparing the defender to a Rolls-Royce. “Djed Spence has really impressed me,” Keown told BBC Sport.

“He’s been on loan from Middlesbrough. He’s been sent to develop his career. And he’s clearly doing it. He’s like a Rolls-Royce .”

Sharing the same view, Wright said: “If we’re talking about unbelievable right-backs, we’re talking about Reece James and Trent (Alexander-Arnold). But I haven’t been in a long time. to see such an aggressive, technical and well-coordinated performance.”

Arsenal must act quickly when the summer window arrives if they want Spence. The player born in 2000 is being watched by many big men after performing brilliantly in the Nottingham Forest shirt on loan from Middlesbrough.

Currently, Arsenal ‘s target  is to sign a striker, a central midfielder and a right-back next summer.
