Agent confirms highly-rated Chilean wants Arsenal move

wenger5562Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have enjoyed a quiet day in the bar, sipping their mojitos with a relaxed attitude, though suddenly they’ve been handed something to talk about.

AS Chile states 16-year-old Chilean sensation Marcelo Allende is keen on a transfer to Arsenal, with the Gunners keen on bringing the teenage talent dubbed the new Alexis Sanchez to North London.

Allende is a product of Cobreloa’s youth ranks, the same club where Arsenal superstar Alexis began his career, and the youngster’s agent Christian Ogalde confirmed his client is keen to see his career hit a similar path to the Arsenal star.

“I have a relationship with many European clubs including Arsenal and, another club, so if tomorrow there are options, we’ll talk. Arsenal is a great training club and we would be interested in working with them if they give us the possibility to.”

Our landlord thinks this is a very Arsene Wenger-like signing and whilst he will not provide an immediate impact to the first-team, he’s another star to keep an eye on in the coming years.
