Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have to fight to land Real Madrid youngster Pablo Sarabia.
The Serbian starlet has impressed a string of admirers after working his way through the Los Blancos ranks, with the Arsenal manager ready to challenge Europe's elite for the player's signature.
Part of the Castilla, better known as reserve side, at the Santiago Bernabeu, Inter Milan and Barcelona were thought to be tracking the player. However, Poruguese side Braga appear to be the biggest threat to the Gunners and are preparing a January bid for the player.
Spanish publication A Bola suggest that Os Arcebispos will offer 3 million euros for 'the jewel of Castilla', with the prospect of first team football one of the key reasons behind the winger's desire to leave the club.
Wenger has had the 18-year-old scouted on several occasions, with Sarabia impressing for club and then country whilst on duty with the Spain U17 squad.
The Frenchman is apparently being kept updated on the situation by the player's agent, Gines Carvajal. Despite the latest reports that Sarabia has agreed terms with Braga, a lack of confirmation will give the north London club hope over a potential transfer.
One of the hottest properties in European football, Sarabia's ability to move to any club if he fails to agree terms on a new contract in Madrid is an added bonus to potential suitors. However, a compensation fee will have to be paid, which would be set by a tribunal.
