The international transfer window hasn’t even opened yet, but according to the Arsenal rumours doing the rounds Arsene Wenger has already made approaches for Petr Cech, Arturo Vidal, Jackson Martinez, Morgan Schneiderlin, Gonzalo Higuain and many many more, and if we get all of them we will DEFINITELY be in the hunt for the title!
But now I have found a very realistic and more likely rumour saying that the Gunners are preparing an offer for the Leicester City youngster Ben Chilwell, who won his club’s Academy Player of the year award. He is only 18 but is a regular in the Foxes U21 side as well as impressing for the England U19s.
He is apparently an accomplished left-back, which makes the rumour even more believable as we currently only have the injury-prone Kieran Gibbs and the 29 year-old Nacho Monreal fighting for that position. If Chilwell carries on improving at his present rate then hopefully in a couple of years he will ready to replace Monreal as a backup to a younger Gibbs.
It is good that Wenger is still bringing n the best youngsters to compete for future places, but having already bought Kristian Bielik and the Argentine wonderkid Maxi Romero we are all hoping to see a top top top player that can slot straight into the first team.
Enough of the teasing Wenger!
