Arsenal targeting Manchester City wonderkid

Posted on July 12, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Mirror, Arsenal have entered the race to sign Manchester City attacking-midfielder Jadon Sancho. The 17-year-old has attracted the interest of a host of clubs this summer and is yet to commit his future to the Sky Blues. Tottenham are believed to have had an approach rebuffed for the coveted youngster.

Sancho, who is being monitored by Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, was a standout performer at the U17 European Championships in May, winning the Golden Player award – previously won by Toni Kroos, Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas.

He’s considered to be one of the brightest teenage talents and made a name for himself after scoring and creating 10 of England U17’s 15 goals in the summer tournament in Croatia. Sancho could be available for just £500k in competition if Manchester City fail to tie him down to a new contract.

The Sky Blues are keen to keep the attacking-midfielder on the books but the interest in his signature could see Sanho’s head turned. Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are well known for blooding English youngsters – the Gunners most notably having a side containing the likes of Kieran Gibbs, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott.
