Reports are coming out that Arsenal have entered into the race for French teenager M’Baye Niang. He’s supposed to be one of the best young players right now in Europe.
He’s playing in Caen’s first-team already and he’s only 16 years old.
The 6ft striker his first-team debut in April this year and scored three goals in seven games.
Every other club in Europe are keeping tabs on the Frenchman but we all know how Wenger seems to do well signing the younger players, they know they will get their chance much earlier with us than anywhere else and surely, and young French player must relish the opportunity of playing and learning from Arsene Wenger…
Real Madrid have already made an offer, expect us to make a better one. ;)
So we now know who we’ll face in the Champions League, the group was looking pretty good until Borussia Dortmund came out of the pot – but, I’d rather we were playing them than waiting for the Europa draw and there’s no reason why we can’t beat them, and the other two sides and finish top of the group. Like we said yesterday after the draw, last seasons group was an easy one for us, but we managed to fluff our lines – maybe having a strong side in the group will make Arsene Wenger and the team concentrate a bit more.
Group F for those who missed it
Anyway, not much point in worrying about all that now, plenty of time before the fixtures take place….
Another young defender looks to be off, Daniel Boateng is probably off to Swindon Town on loan, he’ll be working under Paolo Di Canio at his new club.
Back in 2010, Boateng was being hunted down by Chelsea and Milan as his contract was due for renewal but he didn’t mess around, as soon as the new paper was waved under his nose, he signed on for us – wise kid….
Just like Frimpong, he has the option to play for either England or Ghana, the only difference being that Boateng was born and raised in London and England are already hoping to secure his services….
Another one coming through guys and gals…..
Now though, we all know what we need, six days Arsene, six days to just make a few tweaks….
Finally for today, reports in the newspaper suggest we have made a bid for Gary Cahill, if true I think it’s an insult as the offer made is reported to be £6 Million and it’s no great surprise to read that this bid has been rejected. If Wenger adds other £10 Million to that offer, he may just get his man……
Have a good day all….
