Arsenal transfer news
The 16-year-old is a highly rated young talent and has recently come up on the Gunners’ radar as they look to snap him up as an exciting prospect for the future.
This teenage sensation is decribed as being one of the biggest talents in the whole of South America at the moment, and it could be great business by Arsenal to get him while he’s still so young.
Arsenal will send officials to Argentina next week to complete the transfer, which is expected to cost the north London club just £2m in what could prove a superb bargain.
Arsene Wenger is known for scouring the globe for top young players, and signed another teenager in the recent January transfer window as he brought in Krystian Bielik from Legia Warsaw.
