Arsenal could sign teenage striker Pablo Moreno after Barcelona took Marcus McGuane from them according to reports.
Arsenal don’t need much motivation to sign a young player from Barcelona.
They’ve signed plenty during Arsene Wenger’s time at the club, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’re looking at another.
According to Mundo Deportivo (via Sport Witness), Arsenal are planning to sign 15-year-old striker Pablo Moreno when his contract expires at the end of the season.
This could, reportedly, be in response to Barcelona taking Marcus McGuane from them during the January transfer window.
McGuane’s contract was due to expire at the end of the season as well, and took the chance to join Barcelona instead of extend his stay at Arsenal.
It of course helps that Moreno seems to be a very promising talent himself.
Described as a ‘killer’, the striker is the top scorer in his age group this season with 16 goals and has played in older age groups.
He’s also represented the Spain u16 side.
Barcelona are trying to convince him to stay, and have opened talks with his agent, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Should Arsenal sign him, there’s bound to be some outrage from the Catalan press.
