Latest development gives Arsenal the chance to sign top Ligue 1 teenage star

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to land Eduardo Camavinga in the summer as his future plans is revealed.

The 18-year-old is one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe at the moment and he is getting set to leave Rennes.

He has interest from top European teams, but Arsenal might get a chance to sign him with Football London reporting that he had a framed image paying homage to Arsenal in his home.

The Athletic is now revealing that the midfielder will be on the move this summer because he has refused to sign a new deal at Rennes.

At 18, it might be too soon for him to leave and it would be understandable if he had remained at his current team for another season.

But the report claims that he will not extend his Rennes contract and if they are serious about making money from his sale, he has to leave this summer.

This is because his current deal expires in 2022.

Arsenal is currently working to keep Martin Odegaard beyond his loan spell.

If Real Madrid refuses, Camavinga could be the ideal replacement for the Norwegian star.

    The football world is awash with teenage prodigies 99% of whom come to nothing. We should trial our own ‘free’ teenage ‘prodigies’ from our own academy like Azeez 18 Balogun 19. As it is we have ESR Niles Willock Nelson.
    We also have Guendouzi to return.
    Torreira and Kolasinac are both bound to see out their contracts as well so the midfield is bulging with talent.
    Teenage prodigies can come for free and play in the academy on 2kper week.

      @Wyoming- I take it you realise just how talented this kid actually is do you? He has most of Europe’s top clubs after him so i can tell you three things for certain. The first is he will no be playing in anyone’s academy next season. The second is he certainly won’t be signing and playing for £2k per week. And the third and final thing is he certainly will not be playing for Arsenal.

      Agree Wyoming, because these players have come through the Academy, the powers that be at Arsenal appear to neglect their talent.
      Next season some of these players will be a year older, be bigger and stronger after a full preseason and in some cases, returning from successful loan spells. They should be given a chance in preseason games to impress.

    Any youngster showing any promise is dubbed the most sought after talent. And these days they come with quite a hefty price tag that most clubs today wont be able to meet. Arsenal need to look within as long as they are faced with the ‘no-crowds’ condition. There are plenty of players, Azeez, Matt Smith, Willock, Patino, Cirjan, etc. with quite similar qualities in their own ranks.

      👍 Look after your own first.

      None of the players you’ve mentioned are anything like Camavinga both in terms of ability and play style. Matt Smith is barely getting game time in league 1, Willock is being benched at Newcastle (and is box-to-box), Cirjian is AM, Azeez and Patino are excellent prospects, but both more technical Fábregas style players (and need loans before being in contention). Ideally, we develop players, but realistically, most of them won’t be good enough.

      Camavinga has been one of the best players in the French first league for two seasons (at 18 years old) and as well as having great technique and vision, is defensively superb. The only chance we’d have is if all the big teams had other targets but if there’s even a slither of a chance, we should get it done.

    A host of Clubs , including Chelsea and Man Utd, are interested in the young guy who from what I’ve seen is a real talent and on a par with Jude Bellingham .He is the type of young player we should be trying to acquire as we simply do not have the cash to compete for well known, proven , experienced types.A word of caution however,it’s easier to shine in the French League than it is in the EPL as exemplified by Pepe.
