World Cup One to Watch: Giorgian De Arrascaeta
RealSport take a closer look at the Uruguayan youngster who is looking to impress at this summer’s World Cup.
With reports of Monaco and Wolverhampton Wanderers chasing the Cruzeiro midfielder, it may not be long before a wider audience get to sample the delights of the 23-year-old’s game.
Uruguay’s number ten has turned heads over the past few seasons after his move from Defensor Sporting. However, still in his infancy on the international stage, we are expected to learn a lot about De Arrascaeta this summer in Russia.
The formally touted ‘wonder-kid’ is an attacking midfielder who is likely to prove an invaluable commodity in the support of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez at the finals.
Whether this be from a starting position or off the bench, the 13-caps that De Arrascaeta has earned have highlighted his potential stardom in the heart of the Uruguayan attack.
