Report – Arsenal in a four-horse race for Italian youngster

Arsenal has been named as one of the clubs interested in a move for Italian youngster Ibrahima Bamba as he develops well at Vitoria Guimaraes.

The Gunners have a reputation for developing top talents around Europe and have continued with that tradition under Mikel Arteta, who has given chances to the club’s best young players.

Bamba is just 20 and has been catching the attention of the senior Italian national team manager Roberto Mancini who invited him to a training camp this month.

He is still developing his game, but that has not stopped clubs from paying attention to him, considering the mature performances he has been delivering.

A report via Sport Witness says Arsenal is in a four-horse race to land him alongside Paris Saint-Germain, Club Brugge and Atalanta.

These clubs are also confident they can convince him to choose them over a move to Arsenal, which is a clear sign that the Gunners must act fast.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Bamba seems like a top talent in the making, and at 20, he is not too young to add to our squad, even though he would be an understudy to our more experienced players.

Adding him to our squad in January might not happen, but we can sign him by the end of this season if we start working on the deal now.

  1. If anyclub , anywhere, has a half promising late teenage or twenty year old, then the obvious club to start a false rumour about buying him is our own Arsenal.

    It is well known that MA intends to buy ALL the young players of any promise in the entire world. And that generous good old Stan , our best mate, will be only too keen to fund it all!!
    The good news for those running JA is that they will NEVER run out of scope for false rumours galore.

  2. This youngster is really sensational and plays similarly to Partey. In my opnion, he’s better than Danilo.
    Bring him to our team. He’s really good

  3. This kid seems to have talent for real, there is an abundance of talents in this position surely Arsenal must get it right, they are all better than Lonkango, at present in my opinion
