This incredibly talented 15-year-old is apparently likened to Theo Walcott, so no surprise then that according to this report, Arsene is lining up a bid!
Not willing to play the big-spending, credit-crunch busting game are Chelsea and Arsenal, so we all know who to blame when the crash comes. Rather than hurl their money around, they want to get 15-year-old Barnsley whelp Reuben Noble-Lazarus on the cheap. Barnsley reckon £2m might be more the order of the day. (The Guardian)
It seems incredible to think a player of such an age was ready to pit his wits in the Championship, but apparently the kid was playing against 18-year-olds whilst he was just 12! He must be having the time of his life, and it was only a matter of time before the big guns appeared on the scene. Of course, there is a danger that people might be getting ahead of themselves. After all, it’s hard to know just how successful such a young talent could become, but if there is a manager in the country who can get the most out of a player that shows maturity beyond his years then it would be the Gunners boss.
Do Arsenal fans think that £2m would be a fair price to pay for the Barnsley kid?
