Arsenal keen on move for 22-year-old winger with prolific youth record
Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on another young attacker who Unai Emery could use to bolster his currently thin squad.
The new Arsenal boss has been lauded for signing French youngster Matteo Guendouzi, who has impressed most of the fans so far this season, even though the team is still struggling to challenge for a place in the top four of the Premier League.
The Gunners are still maintaining some of the best aspects of Arsene Wenger’s legacy which includes keeping faith in the youth instead of spending heavily on big name players.
Indeed, Dutch outlet RTKLive are reporting that Arsenal have been tracking young winger Donis Avdijaj.
The report is suggesting that the club is ‘ready to negotiate’ with Dutch club Willem II over the signing of 22-year-old.
Avdijaj is now plying his trade in the Eredivisie after leaving Schalke on a free transfer during the summer transfer window.
The forward scored a staggering 59 goals in 53 matches for the U17 team and 17 goals in 24 games for the U19 side during his early years at Schalke.
