The Express has given Arsenal fans hope in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Gunners reportedly lead a host of top European clubs in the chase to sign Benfica starlet Goncalo Guedes, labelled the ‘new Franck Ribery’.
The Gunners, Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund are all after the 17-year-old so it is a big boost that the English side are leading the pursuit.
Arsene Wenger hopes that he can entice the Portuguese starlet with their dedication to fast track youngsters into the first team.
The Gunners have of course brought many teenagers through the ranks, putting them on the correct path in becoming established Premier League footballers.
Arsenal’s toughest competition is Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich as the Spanish manager is looking for the next world class wingers to replace his ageing star duo of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
Punters are torn on whether or not it is worth getting caught up in a big money scramble which ultimately could prove to be a huge gamble.
Because the last thing they need is another young winger coming through the ranks. Our resident Gooners are crying out for a top class defensive midfielder and another centre back.
