Freeman in line for Arsenal switch

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he is closing in on the signature of talented 15-year-old Gillingham forward Luke Freeman - and maintained the next generation of Gunners stars could all be home-grown Englishmen.

The League One club are resigned to losing their talented prospect, who became the youngest player to feature in the FA Cup when he came on against Barnet in the first round earlier this season and was also attracting interest from Newcastle and West Ham.

With a deal close to being agreed, which will also include a transfer fee, Freeman looks set to follow the likes of England Under-21 international Theo Walcott to the Emirates Stadium.
