Arsenal Close In On Spanish Wonderkid

By on August 4, 2011

Arsene Wenger hopes to secure the signing of Real Madrid star Jose Rodriguez in the coming days.

Many claim the 17-year old to be one of the hottest properties in Europe and the box-to-box midfielder could be heading to North London this summer.

Spanish tabloid AS claim Arsenal’s Spanish scout Francis Cagigao has been watching the youngster and has recommended the player to Wenger.

The Frenchman has reportedly already spoken to Rodriguez about the switch to England and hopes to move for the Spanish Under 17 star next month.

    Why is Wenger still buying youngsters who will never actually play for the first team. We need experienced players now in the shape of Cahill, Mata, Dann & an experienced goallie. We have the cash so splash it. If we can buy this kid for £x m then we have the funds available for the players we need in the team now.

    Wenger MUST STOP JOKING!Yes,we need such players to be available and help the club,but let him FIRST bring in to the Emirates the following players:Mata,Alvaro,Ribery and Samba to reinforce our young squad because we WANT trophies at ARSENAL this time round!

    Better him than nothing – and on a cheapie… seems a no-brainer to me. But, as above we need to buy some stronger players also.

      Blind leading the blind with this one – get rid of manager and board, bring back Dein, that’s constructive. Your views – batshit crazy, wenger can’t sign a top player to save his life.

    go for it arsene, good job, hopefully the trio of this guy, harper and hector with a sprinkle of jebb will come good and dominate their age group. now the youths should be surrounded by the technically gifted to enhance their own skills.
