Alukoâ€™s form before the injury was turning heads in the top-flight and Bruce has revealed that even Arsene Wenger was keen to know how the striker was progressing when City travelled to Arsenal last week.
â€śHe started off the season in a way that gave us something a little bit different,â€ť said Bruce to the Hull Daily Mail.
â€śIâ€™m not saying heâ€™s essential to the team but it plays better when heâ€™s in it because heâ€™s a good player.
â€śHeâ€™s our talisman who gives us that little something different.
â€śWe can be organized and efficient but at the end of the day Soneâ€™s got ability at the top of the pitch that you donâ€™t see too often anymore.
â€śArsene Wenger even asked about him the other day. That should give Sone confidence if someone like Arsene Wenger is asking all about when heâ€™s coming back.â€ť
