Arsenal are reportedly interested in son of former Premier League footballer Dean Windass.

Josh Windass is currently playing in midfield for Accrington Stanley but is out of contract at the end of the season and is looking to move onto bigger things. A number of Championship clubs have been linked with the midfielder, but the Express claim that Arsène Wenger is watching closely.

According to their report, Wenger watched the first round FA Cup game between Accrington Stanley and York City at the weekend. The tie ended in a 3-2 win for the Lancashire club, with Windass netting the third goal from the penalty spot.

The midfielder has scored eight goals in 16 League Two appearances this season, an impressive return.

Dean Windass played for Bradford City, Middlesbrough and Hull City in the Premier League (as well as Oxford United in the old First Division), scoring 36 top flight goals.

To have any chance of making it to and at Arsenal, Josh will need to be more talented than his father. The entire transfer seems unlikely, no matter how well Windass is currently performing he is in League Two and not incredibly young at the age of 21.

With his contract coming to an end, this may well be a ploy from the player’s agent to spark more interest, rather than genuine interest from Arsenal.
