Could Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger target Hoffenheim central midfielder Afriyie Acquah?

To cover that scenario, here is a scouting report on the 22-year-old Ghanaian international.

Positives

Acquah is a 5'11", 154-pound footballer, who featured predominantly as a central midfielder in a 4-3-3 or as an emergency right wing-back on loan atParma last season.

What's more, Acquah has accumulated more fouls per game than tackles per game in three of his four seasons in Serie A.

League Only Tackles Per Game Fouls Per Game
2013-14 1.7 2.1
2012-13 1.3 0.8
2011-12 1.5 1.8
2010-11 0.9 1.6

Acquah needs to expand his passing range, given he only averaged one long pass per game last season.

There is a vast gap when you compare and contrast his short-medium passes to his long passes.

Long Passes Short-Medium Passes
28/49 672/755
57.1% 89%
