Arsenal is to young football talent what cheese is to burgers – and by this I mean they go well together.
If you don’t like cheese in your burgers, this metaphor does not work but hey-ho, back to business. Arsene Wenger is said to be eyeing up an additional cog to his young footballing wheel. I must remember to stop using bad metaphors (yes you must, ed).
According to the Daily Mirror, Wenger is jumping to the head of the queue for Cardiff’s young midfield dynamo Aaron Ramsey and is plotting a shock raid.
The 17-year-old Caerphilly lad has already had a taste of first-team action this season and appears to like it. Apparently last summer the Welsh club turned down a £1m bid from a London-based club.
Could that have been Arsenal? The odds suggest so.
