What goes around comes around. Arsenal have developed a reputation of sneaking away top youngsters from clubs when they turn 16. Now it seems that someone else is on the verge of luring away a top talent from the Gunners.
Jack Wilshere maybe only 16 but he has already become the youngest league debutant when he played against Blackburn Rovers earlier this month. So much so that mega-rich Chelsea are reporttedly on the verge of signing the teenager, who is set to become a Gunners first-teamer in the coming weeks.
Wilshire is a remarkable talent with loads of creativity and Arsenal are so desperate to hang onto the prospective England international that they are ready to offer him a six-year contract just to ward off Chelsea.
Seems like it’s Arsenal against Chelsea all over again, on a different level.
