Arsenal Linked With Move For Wonderkid Striker

Club Deportivo Guadalajara starlet again linked with Emirates Stadium transfer, with Arsene Wenger a known admirer.

Arsenal are thought to be pursuing a move for Mexican striker Carlos Fierro, who currently plays for Club Deportivo Guadalajara.

The forward, who is 17 years of age, was wanted by the Gunners last summer, but opted against the move at such an early stage of his career.

With a season of first team football under his belt though, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will make a second attempt to convince the teenager to move to the Emirates Stadium, according to airfutbol.

Fierro has broken into the CD Guadalajara team this season, and has made 20 appearances this season – of which twelve were from the bench.

He has begun to make a firm contribution to the team though, and scored the only goal in his team’s victory over Defensor Sporting of Uruguay in the Copa Libertadores – the South American equivalent of the UEFA Champions League in Europe.

Fierro was the top scorer for his country at the U17 FIFA World Cup last summer, with four goals and five assists in seven games as Mexico won the tournament. He was voted the third best player in the competition overall, and it is no surprise Arsene Wenger is a huge fan.

Though often played as a central striker, it is thought that Fierro would thrive just off an orthodox forward, where his impressive vision and technique could be best utilised.

Will a second attempt to sign the teenage Mexican prove successful for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal?
