talkSPORT have got Arsenal fans sitting on the edge of their stools here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the club could be ready to swoop for one of Inter Milan’s sensational starlets.
Young Danish talent Patrick Olsen has been on the radar of manager Arsene Wenger for some time now and the Frenchman is upping his pursuit of the young player.
Arsenal fans are noting that they feel luckier than most fans after managing to net Mesut Ozil this summer and now could well follow that up with one of the best young stars around.
Olsen is considered to be one of his country’s brightest prospects and has already represented Denmark for the Under-21 side.
Wenger did make a proposal to the Serie A side which would have involved taking Olsen on loan with the option to buy – yet in the least surprising news since our top shelf spirits were drunk dry on deadline day, the club rejected that out of hand.
Wenger is still very keen on the 19-year-old and whilst he has not yet made a formal bid, this has not stopped him from considering making one this January, with his top scouts tasked with watching the player and offering their first hand advice.
Will Arsenal land the young Dane in January? Let us know your thoughts below.
