Rob Holding has claimed that he is in currently enjoying the best form of his Arsenal career under Unai Emery (via Sky Sports).
Of all the players to benefit from Unai Emery’s time in charge of the club, Rob Holding’s name would have to be towards the top of the list.
The 23-year-old has been a key figure in the team in recent months and has now claimed that he is ready to make the next step into the England national team.
“I think this is my best run in an Arsenal shirt,” Holding told Sky Sports. “Consistency-wise, it’s been 12 games consistently playing to a good level, not playing because someone is injured but on merit. That gives you more confidence.
“Gareth Southgate has brought a refreshed feeling to England with a lot of young lads. If you’re playing well in the Premier League week in, week out, as we saw with Callum Wilson and Lewis Dunk, you’re going to get chances.
“You want to be a part of what they are creating at the moment. Obviously what they did at the World Cup and there is the Euros in over a year’s time. It’s a great time to be involved with England so why wouldn’t you want to be?”
