Arsenal are closing in on the ‘new Cesc Fabregas’ after making an offer to sign 16-year-old Pablo Saranova from Espanyol.

The left-sided midfielder has broken into Espanyol’s B team and has been compared with the Spain star.

One should always be wary of such tags as the ‘New-Zidane/Maradona/Fabregas’ as invariably it’s simply the product of the player’s agent’s imagination or a tabloid fabrication. Clearly Cesc is hugely talented player who the club has missed but simply because Saranova is Spanish, young and a midfielder isn’t enough to get carried away with. Clearly if Arsene feels the player is worth snapping up then that alone will tell anyone if the guy has potential.
