Arsenal are reportedly willing to go up against Manchester City in order to bring 16-year-old Juventus striker, Moise Kean, to north London.
According to reports, the impressive youngster, who scored 24 goals in 25 appearances for the Italian side’s under-17s (Primavera) last season, has been on City’s radar for a while. The Gunners were also linked with him in mid-September.
Now, it’s claimed that Arsenal are ready to compete against their rivals in the transfer market.
Are we interested? It’s entirely possible considering he’s young, talented and the link isn’t new.
An interesting point, however, is that his agent is none other than Mouthy McChatterson, Mino Raiola, whose clients include Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimović. He recently had some pretty unsavoury words about Arsenal although you can imagine that, given that a lot of his wages come from Manchester United, he would feel similarly about City.
“It’s shouldering the responsibility of spending that money and saying, ‘yes, this is my man’,” he claimed, referring to our transfer activity.
“Arsenal have the money but do they have the balls?”
All we know is, as we’ve learned, the Italian has a lot of say about where his clients end up.
