Arsenal target two starlets in summer deals including the ‘new Gareth Bale’

Arsenal are set to launch two moves for exiting starlet pair Ben Chilwell and Ryan Sessegnon during the summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Reports broke on Tuesday claiming that the Gunners missed out on late moves for the duo on transfer deadline day, but their interest is set to remain strong over the coming months.

Manager Arsene Wenger had been a known admirer of Leicester full-back Chilwell, and had an approach turned down for the 19-year-old earlier in the window, but his pursuit of England under-16 captain Sessegnon ended with frustration on the final day.

A speedy left-winger, Sessegnon has often been compared to Gareth Bale, and is being tipped to enjoy a big future in the game at the top level.

Chilwell will almost certainly be back on Wenger’s wish list, as he looks to bring in a possible replacement for Kieran Gibbs, who has been tipped to leave thanks to his lack of regular first team football recently.
