Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Arsenal has reportedly made contact with Real Madrid young striker Borja Mayoral’s representatives, according to reports.
The Gunners are planning on capitalising on the ongoing disagreement between Mayoral and Real Madrid over a proposed improved deal for the 18 year old which the Spanish giants are not okay with.
The Spanish Under-21 international has featured prominently for Real Madrid B team called Real Madrid Castilla; scoring 5 goals in 17 appearances so far this term. His performance gave him a chance at the Real Madrid senior team and has also made it to the bench on two Champions League nights.
Arsene Wenger is known to afford gifted youngsters the opportunity at first team appearance as long as the young star is patient enough and grow through the rank. Spanish international midfielder and former Barcelona superstar; Cesc Fabregas made his debut for Arsenal at age 16 while England international Theo Walcott’s also made his debut at a young age after moving from Southampton to the Emirates.
