Arsenal Snap Up Two Teenage Starlets
Arsenal have managed to nab the signature of Gervinho, but that hasn’t changed Wenger’s habit at all, as he has brought in two promising young, exciting prodigies.
So, Who are they?
Well, technically they’ve only managed to bring in one name officially, but they’re very close to bringing in the other, as they have landed him on trial. The teenager that they have landed is IFK Norrköping midfielder Kristoffer Olsson.
I can confirm that the deal is done, but I won’t comment on any numbers. But we are pleased with the deal.
Arsenal sporting director Tony Martinsson told younggunsblog.co.uk
The other kid that they are close to signing is Lokomotiv Plovdiv winger Nenad Lukić. Lukić is just 18 years old and Arsene Wenger is reportedly interested in bringing in the Serbian to bolster his options for the left wing spot.
And How Much?
Well, according to the source, the deal for Kristoffer Olsson has been completed for £293k. Lukic however isn’t signed up yet, but is reportedly very close to a switch to the Emirates.
Just How Good Are They?
Not much has been said about exactly how good Kristoffer Olsson is nor in fact what position he plays in midfield. But being so young and being snapped up by Arsenal really says something, doesn’t it?
Young Guns Blog have praised Lukic for his acceleration along with his skill with the ball. A very creative winger and from what I’ve seen in videos (below), I think that he draws similarities with Lille man Eden Hazard.
