Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Real Betis starlet Alvaro Vadillo, with reports in Spain claiming the Gunners only need his signature to complete a deal.
Labelled the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo', Vadillo has been impressing many with some promising performances for the Seville side and, according to Punto Pelota, Arsenal have moved quickly to put together a deal.
The Gunners have an abundance of midfield talent, though Wenger has shown in the past that he is ready to splash out on promising talent, whether he has sufficient numbers in that area or not.
Vadillo's impressive performances this season have done little to help the plight of his club, however, as Betis have managed only two victories in 14 La Liga matches and are three points adrift at the bottom of the table.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are experiencing as good a start to a season in a few years, leading both the Premier League and their Champions League group.
Manager Arsene Wenger has a reputation for nurturing young talent in north London and the 19-year-old Spain Under-19 international is supposedly as promising as they come - a price tag in the region of €20million is mooted in the report.
