There have been hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with many top strikers like Karim Benzema, Edison Cavani, Jackson Martinez, and many others, but with just three days left it looked like we were going to be stuck with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for yet another season.
As both of those have recently signed new contract extensions we could maybe have these two leading the line for the next few seasons as well! But once they get close to retirement, we may well have the perfect replacement lined up…
The Express confirmed yesterday that Arsenal have paid Ipswich Town 100,000 Pounds for their 15 year-old prodigy Harry Clarke, who has recently become a Youtube sensation for scoring a goal for the Tractor Boys’ academy side in a team goal worthy of the seior Arsenal side! You can watch it at the end of this post.
Arsenal have a good relationship with Ipswich and we sent the brilliant youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles up to Norfolk to try and help Mick McCarthy’s side win promotion to the Premiership. The 17 year-old has started every League game so far for Ipswich.
I know JustArsenal readers have recently been predicting that Wenger’s last transfer arrival in this window would be a striker, but we didn’t expect him to be just 15 years old!
Watch Clarke score here…..
