Arsenal scouts looking at talented Toulouse youngster for possible January bid

It has been revealed that Arsenal scouts have been checking out the 19 year old attacking Toulouse midfielder Fares Chaibi as a possible new arrival to join Arteta’s youth revolution.

Chaibi was born in Lyon of Algerian descent and was only promoted to the Toulouse first team this summer but despite his tender age he has been nigh on ever-present this season, and has contributed with two goals and four assists in his 13 starts for the Tolosans. The only two matches he missed was because he had to have his appendix removed.

Not only is he a teenage prodigy but Fares can play as an AM, or on the right wing, and actually played up front as a striker when the Gunners scouts watched him in a 2-2 draw with Strasbourg last month.

His rise has been meteoric this season, and he was even voted “nugget of the month of October” (the best young player) on the Official French Ligue 1 Twitter account.

According to FootMercato, the rising youngster is receiving great interest from Arsenal and Seville, but I’m sure if he was given the choice he would have no problem choosing the Gunners.

Maybe we could get in early and sign him up, and then leave him on loan in France to continue his development for the rest of the season?

  1. But has not Arsenal have the likes of many Fares Chaibi in their U23 youth team to call upon and use them? Such as Edward S,mith who Arteta has severall times named in Arsenal’s teams for the Europa League Cup matches this season.
    But the Gunners boss has not yet played him in any of the Arsenal’s ELC matches this season. So that us Gooners will see the quality of which Edward Smith is made of had he was played.
    But nevertheless, hopefull, I think the Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta may wish to play the 22 year old Arsenal midfielder Edward Smith. And also his likes too who are in the Arsenal U23 team for the soon coming Arsenal two friendly matches at home and away againsy Leon and to Milan.
    So that, if E Smith and his likes in the Arsenal U23 team are played in the two friendlies. And they impressed to warrant any of them be promoted to the senior team squad thereafter. Arteta will of cousins see to that possible implementation. Rather than for Arsenal to sign Fares Chaibi. But I have nothing personal against Chaibi. Arsenal could go ahead to sign him next winter window if they want him.
    But I rather preferred to see them hesitate after the Word Cup break is over. Which by then they may see other top quality midfielder talents unearned to emerge from. And who suit Arsenal’s current age signing profile to sign. So that they may possibly sign one or two top quality players next winter window to do an upgrade to some key positions in their senior team squad. Such as in their holding midfield and striker departments.
