Arsenal set to raid Barca for ‘new Fabregas’

In the news today:

The Daily Star report that Arsenal are on the hunt for yet another Barcelona super-youth. Teenager, Gerard Deulofeu is a Spanish U19 international, despite only being 17 years of age.

Following Arsenal’s raid of La Masia in the past for talents such as Cesc Fabregas, Ignasi Miguel, Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin, the Spanish giants will be wary of Arsenal’s power given that their country’s rules state that no contract can be offered to Deulofeu until he is 18.

English rules state that Arsenal can offer the wonderkid a deal now, and the newspaper is suggesting a £3m bid could see ‘the new Cesc Fabregas’ in north London.

Take a look at the youngster in action – a player being compared in Catalonia to Ronaldinho!

    He's never been referred to as cesc-like, they've dubbed him the new messi in Barcelona! I've been waiting a year for us to be linked with this kid, if we get him it would be the best deal we've done since cesc, he is the real deal!
