Arsenal scouting Croatian Youngster

Josip Brekalo, Croatian Wonderkid, is reportedly coveted by the upper echelons of Arsenal’s scouting set up.

Ex-Arsenal defender Gilles Grimandi watched the winger who has been impressing in this years UEFA youth League, and the 17 year old’s performances for Dinamo Zagreb’s youth sides have made Europe’s best sides take notice.

Given Brekalo is not a first team regular it may be a somewhat odd move by the Arsenal recruitment team who are under pressure to buy a big name proven striker in the summer. Despite his future potential. Dissent in the fan base has grown in recent months with Arsenal’s weak title challenge and many would see another long term purchase buy Wenger as unnecessary and almost arrogant.

Anyhow! The guy is only 17 after all and the price tag would presumably not be too high.

If these skills are anything to go by, he may be one to keep an eye on.
