Paraguayan 'wonderkid' wants Arsenal chance - aims to emulate Henry

Next Story

Sol de America striker Enzo Prono is making waves in Paraguay, and already set his sights on an English breakthrough with Arsenal.

The diminutive teenager, who's also a first year law student, has struck two-in-two in the top flight in his homeland, and believes his style of play is similar to that of Radamel Falcao.

“I liked playing that way [a lone striker] because you know all the moves,” Prono told when comparing himself to the Colombian forward.

“I think I am similar to him because of the way he plays, he is very good with his head."

The youngster already has experience of Europe after trials with clubs in Belgium and Italy, and admits that playing in the continent is a career-goal.

However, the dream appears to be the chance to play for Arsenal under manager Arsene Wenger, with Prono eager to emulate his idol - Thierry Henry.

"It was a good experience, I learned things. They work on that [passing of the ball], they work on that all day so that makes for a faster brand of soccer," said the player in relation to European football.

“I would love to play at Arsenal. Thierry Henry was the best, for me he was the best striker ever."


The Gunners are known to have one of the best scouting networks in the world, and whilst the player's not currently thought to be on the Arsenal radar, continuation of his fine form could alert a host of club around the world.

An omission of desire towards Arsenal will be well-received though, and should the player continue to impress, the Gunners may come calling in the future for the dubbed 'wonderkid'.
