Ian Wright has revealed he’d “love someone” like Paul Pogba at Arsenal, praising the midfielder for his latest displays for Manchester United.

During the last six weeks, Pogba has shown some of his best performances, following the player’s agent Mino Raiola’s comments regarding his future at Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old was on fine form in United’s 2 – 1 win over Aston Villa, while speaking on Match of the Day, Wright shared his praise with the Frenchman.

“Yes [Pogba is back to his best] he is and you know, with all the stuff that’s happened with him he’s getting it right on the pitch,” he said.

“He’s put it all to the side and to be honest he’s putting in good performances. ‘He was unlucky there [not to score against Villa] but I thought with his ability he should have scored.

“Great touch, great play, great awareness, great skill. He’s getting everyone playing and that’s what he does. He was everywhere. He was in his own box, he was up there in their box, he was doing everything today.

“That’s what he can do with his creativity. you give him this much time when you have willing runners like Marcus Rashford….that is just fantastic. A super, super pass. I’d love to have someone like that.”
