Real Madrid’s highly rated midfielder Pablo Sarabia is being courted by Arsenal reports SkySports.com.
The 18-year-old Spaniard is currently on loan at Madrid’s B-side Castilla, but has been recommended to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger by top European scout Francis Cagigao.
Having scored 11 goals in 39 games for Castilla, Sarabia was handed his first-team debut in December in a Champions League game against Auxerre.
He is widely regarded as one of the hottest young prospects in Spain, and although he is contracted to Real until the summer of 2013, the Madrid-based club are fearful of losing a potential star of the future.
Sarabia’s agent Gines Carvajal confirmed that there are a number of parties interested in his client, but refused to name Arsenal specifically and instead explained he is set to hold talks with the current clubs hierarchy.
"Some clubs are looking at Sarabia and Real knows this," Carvajal confirmed.
"The kid wants to triumph in Real and I will have a meeting with the club's directors at the end of the season."
As a left-sided midfielder who can also operate in the middle of the park, Sarabia could prove to be a great addition to the current Arsenal squad, and so an attempt to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in the summer may well be orchestrated.
With Cagigao credited as the man who initiated Arsenal’s approach for Cesc Fabregas, his recommendations have ever since been well respected by the North London club’s bosses.
And having already concluded business in Spain which will see Barcelona prospect Jon Toral complete a summer move to Arsenal, it is thought that the Gunners could go back to try and complete a deal for another of La Liga’s hottest properties.
