Arsenal are reportedly monitoring Jann-Fiete Arp’s situation at Hamburg.
Arp has under two years left on his contract with Hamburg, which has apparently prompted the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Juventus and, of course, Arsenal to keep an eye on the 17-year-old’s situation.
According to SportBild (via Sport Witness), the Bundesliga side are pretty anxious over tying the striker down to a long-term agreement, even if that only means they get a better fee when he moves on.
Arp has only just broken into Hamburg’s first team, scoring twice in three league appearances and netting a whopping seven during the three times he’s featured for their youth side.
Last season, the Germany u17 international scored an impressive 28 goals in 25 appearances.
However, while a move to a bigger club sounds promising as Hamburg are currently battling relegation in 15th place with just 10 points from 11 games, Arp is getting regular first team football there. He’s unlikely to elsewhere.
What’s more, he moved to their youth side from SV Wahlstedt in 2010 and was born in Bad Segeberg, not far from the city. Therefore, at the moment, he’s got a pretty sweet deal where he is and probably loves the club.
He’s clearly a very talented youngster and it’ll be interesting to see how he develops this season.
