Promoted side keen on making a bid for highly-rated Arsenal youngster

Promoted side interested in landing the services of Arsenal youngster

Sheffield Wednesday are hoping to sign the young Arsenal defender Brooke Norton-Cuffy, according to a report.

The defender has been loaned out on a number of occasions in the past few seasons and has impressed wherever he has moved.

The 19-year-old already has 41 Championship appearances under his belt, while also boasting 17 in England’s third tier.

While those number might not be shiny in the grand scheme of things, it is certainly a good enough achievement from a player still in his teens.

A loan move will certainly make a lot of sense. With Arsenal trying to bolster the right back slot, letting go of Norton-Cuffy, where he can play week in and week out, can be massive for the development of the player.

The report stated that there has been no talk between Wednesday and the Gunners, but that is expected to change in the coming weeks.

Right now, Arsenal have just one senior right back in their ranks, Takehiro Tomiyasu. Even though Benjamin White played most of the 2022/23 campaign on the flanks, Mikel Arteta certainly does not see the Englishman as the ideal fit for that role.

That is why there has been interest in Ivan Fresneda and more recently Timothy Castagne. If Arsenal acquire one more body in that department this summer, moving out Norton-Cuffy on a temporary basis will make a lot of sense.

It will be interesting to see whether Wednesday formalize their interest In the form of an official offer. IF they decide against doing it, the Hale End graduate will still have a good amount of clubs circling around him.

  1. Why are we loaning or selling our academy players ??
    Have we abandoned our philosophy and culture?

  2. Trying to buy Castagne while loaning out Norton Cuffy is something I simply cannot comprehend.

  3. A shame we don’t seem to be giving many opportunities to academy players to rise.

    Great example is buying Vieira when you have ESR and Patino coming up. Never thought luxury buy Vieira for 35 million was good business.

    Anyway, hope to see some youngsters developed and given a chance to earn depth and cup games.
