With Arsenal in with a real chance of signing prolific forward Jadon Sancho, excited supporters have been talking up the transfer on social media.
The Manchester City teenager is keen for a move in order to get more playing time, with Arsenal, Tottenham and RB Leipzig the most interested in procuring his signature.
According to Football Fancast, Sancho scored 20 goals for Manchester City’s youth sides last season and has been prolific for the England U16 and U17s too – 19 goals in 23 games.
Given his impressive credentials and Arsenal’s record in developing youngsters, some fans feel Sancho could become a great player under the right guidance and haven’t been shy relaying such opinion on social media.
After the 17-year-old praise Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson on his man-of-the-match performance in pre-season, supporters jumped on the ideal of a pairing.
This fan was weighing up the prospect of having the talented youngsters developing together at the Emirates Stadium.
With Tottenham still in the picture and Man City still his current club, this fan is hoping a deal will be done soon for the sake of his career.
Hoping Jadon Sancho doesn't go to Tottenham or rot at City. Mad baller. Would love to have him here. Would fill the gap of Gnabry.
