Arsenal ready to rival European giant for excelling teenager

arsenallllArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are crying out for top quality additions this summer, so the latest name linked to the club isn’t quite making them purr.

TalkSport states Arsenal are rivalling La Liga giants Sevilla for the signature of Marseille’s want-away teenager Bilal Boutoubba, who’s rejected a new contract with the Ligue 1 side.

Since making his debut for Marseille at the age of just 16, Boutoubba has found first-team opportunities limited and thus is seeking an exit from the French side. Until now, Sevilla were leading the chase but Arsenal’s interest hands them an issue.

With the player available on a free transfer this summer, both Arsenal and Sevilla are expected to make contact with the talented ace and will continue to scout the player. However, whether he’d improve the first-team squad at either side is debatable.

Do Arsenal need quality or young talent? Let us know in the comments below!
