Like me, you're all probably wondering, "Who is he?"

It is however, quite an accomplishment when some of Europe's biggest clubs are interested in 17 year old winger, Gonçalo Guedes.

With the news coming that Arsenal, Valencia and Bayern Munich are all interested in the youngster, football fans across the globe have, along with realising that they'll never become a scout for their favourite team, been watching every YouTube video available to see just how good this boy is.

At just 17 years old, the kid clearly is a real talent. The star for the Benfica reserves, Gonçalo Guedes has everything going for him.

Not even to mention his breathtaking pace, his control and powerful right foot make him the ideal mold for a modern day winger. Dubbed as the next Frank Ribery, I can't help but think that Guedes is more reminiscent of a young Cristiano Ronaldo.

It is not uncommon for a 17 year old to be linked with a move to a top flight club. We normally hear about a man who is putting club legends to shame, and terrorizing opposition defenses in a push for the league title. In Guedes case however, he is yet to make a competitive appearance for the Benfica XI.

Who are Guedes most likely suitors?

Although immediately we can all see a move to Arsenal on the cards, we should not count out a move to Valencia. We all know Arsenal are known for their academy and Wenger's fantastic management of young stars, but when you look at the young talent that's come out of Valencia, you have Premier League stars Juan Mata and David Silva, as well as Spain legend David Villa.

A move to Valencia could also be appealing for Guedes as it would mean that the 17 year old wouldn't have to move halfway across Europe to England.
