Arsenal continue 16-year-old wonderkid striker pursuit

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Scandinavian starlet Robert Mirosavic, according to SkySports.

The 16-year-old Helsingborgs starlet enjoyed a successful trial at the Emirates earlier in the month, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen to continue monitoring the player's progress.

Reports go on to claim that Arsenal are keen to sign the player permanently in the summer, with the player rejecting a full-time deal in his homeland as he hopes to secure a north London switch.

"It's not wrong that players are on trial abroad. They get experience that helps them when they come home," sports director Jesper Jansson to Helsingborgs Dagblad.

Mirosavic was joined by compatriot Kristoffer Olsson during his second short spell with the Gunners, and both are thought to have made an impression on the youth coaches at the club.

It's Mirosavic who appears closest to an Arsenal switch though, and the player could add to the highly-acclaimed Arsenal academy.


Wenger is renowned for getting the best out of young talent at the club, and the teen striker could add to the talent pool at Arsenal.
