Arsenal prepare move after scouts monitor 'next Torres'

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are being linked with a summer transfer swoop for Slovenian starlet Enei Jelenic.

The teenage forward has been earning rave reviews in his homeland after a string of fine performances for Luka Koper, and SkySports claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is believed to has dispatched scouts to watch the player.

Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Sampdoria are also thought to be interested in the player, but the Gunners appear to have moved first with these latest revelations.

17-year-old Jelenic has been likened to Liverpool striker Fernando Torres in the past, but Roy Hodgson's Anfield outfit are not thought to be interested in the player.

Jelenic has been valued in the region of £500,000, and a move from Arsenal would continue their policy of investing in quality young players at the Emirates.

Wenger has a track record of getting the best out of young, foreign talent, and Arsenal could trump their challengers for the player's signature with their famed north London academy.

Whilst Luka Koper are believed to be waiting until the summer to sell the player, the reports suggest that the club will listen to offers, handing Arsenal the initiative if they wish to follow up the scouting trip with a bid.
