Gunners keen to snap up England Under-16 international.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could make another dip into the transfer market for promising youth players this summer, after being linked by the Daily Mirror with 14-year-old West Brom starlet Yan Dhanda.
The England Under-16 international has become something of a YouTube sensation with his skills and goals for West Brom’s youth team, whom he joined after being spotted in an Asian Soccer Star talent competition.
Although it will be some time before Dhanda can make an impact at senior level, he looks to have the raw ingredients to make a great career for himself, and will be tempted to continue his development at Arsenal, who are known for their expert nurturing of young players.
Wenger has often looked to sign lesser-known young talents to make up for the club’s lack of financial power in the transfer market, particularly since the emergence of Chelsea and Manchester City under their billionaire ownership.
Cesc Fabregas has undoubtedly been his finest achievement, as the Spaniard joined the Gunners from Barcelona as a 15-year-old, and went on to become one of the best midfielders in the world and club captain, before returning to the Nou Camp for £25million.
