Chelsea Tipped To Outbid Arsenal For England Wonder Kid
Chelsea are expected to outbid London rivals Arsenal when the two sides go head-to-head over the signing of West Brom wonder kid Isaiah Brown this summer.
Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal and Chelsea are linked with Isaiah Brown.
Arsenal and Chelsea are set to go head-to-head over the signing of West Brom wonder kid Isaiah Brown, according to the Sun.
The report claims that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been watching the 16-year-old for some time and is ready to table a £1m bid this summer after receiving positive scouting reports from Arsenal’s head of development and former WBA coach Terry Burton.
However, it seems Wenger may have to dig a little deeper if he wants to win the race to sign the England U-17 striker as the Sun suggest that London rivals Chelsea are going to table a £2m bid of their own and will look to use their strong relationship with Baggies boss, and former Chelsea coach, Steve Clarke to help seal the deal.
Brown burst onto the scene with some impressive display’s for West Brom’s youth and U-21 teams this season with his pace being his greatest asset after recording times quick enough to qualify for last year’s English Schools Sprint Championship’s.
He’s currently on a two-year scholarship deal with Albion and the Midlander’s will be keen to tie him down to professional terms when he turns 17, but it looks like they’ll face a fight to keep hold of him with two of London’s big-guns circling .
