You probably will not have heard of young Real Madrid star Sergio Diaz, however he has openly come out to the media to call out Arsene Wenger into buying him.
Sergio Diaz is a current Real Madrid youth product, who at 18 years old is a very promising talent for the future. The Paraguayan is set for a move away from Madrid this summer after a lack of opportunities. Italian side AS ROMA are the most likely club set to secure the youngsters signature in the coming days, however instead of praising his new side, he has called out his ambition to play for Arsenal.
Speaking to RGS radio, an Italian radio station, Diaz mentions Arsenal and his ambition to one day play for the Gunners. Diaz said: ‘My dream is to play for Arsenal, which I’ve had since I was a child. My future? I am told my transfer to Roma is all but done. At the moment it is still very quiet. I do not know when I will leave for Italy but, in essence, my move to Roma has been confirmed.’
In all honesty he doesn’t sound all too excited to be moving to Italy with Roma and perhaps this is an attempt to get Wenger interested in a last minute bid for the youngster. However with Arsenal fans hoping for a few more experienced incomers joining the club this summer instead of more youthful players for the future, perhaps young Diaz will be unlucky in his quest for an Arsenal transfer. The youngster is highly rated however and so perhaps he is certainly someone we should keep our eyes on for the future.
