Arsenal tracking African starlet

Published Add your comment

Arsenal could be set to add yet more promising young talent to their squad, with reports suggesting that they are monitoring Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Gunners, managed by long-serving boss Arsene Wenger, have enjoyed a quite spectacular start to the new domestic campaign and currently sit top of the Premier League.

The club enjoy a strong tradition for importing and nurturing some of the world's top youth talent and that looks as if it could be set to continue.

The Daily Mirror cites a report from The Sun claiming that Wenger's men are monitoring highly-rated starlet Iheanacho.

Interest from some of Europe's top clubs in Iheanacho certainly would not come as a shock following his eye-catching recent performance at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

In a crushing 6-1 triumph over Mexico earlier this month, Iheanacho netted a brace either side of half-time on his way to a stunning four-goal haul.

Arsenal, meanwhile, whose fans feared it may be another long season fraught with yet more trophy-less disappointment, kept their place at the summit of the English top-flight following a hard-fought 2-0 over Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
