Despite what you might think during these last few days of the transfer window, Arsenal still remains an attractive destination for certain players.
While it may not be the big guns around Europe as Arsène Wenger starts panicking ahead of the 31st of August, there is some young talent out there who want to make an impact in the Premier League while wearing the red and white shirt.
Scoring one goal and picking up two assists in his first four games for KAS Eupen, the 19-year-old right-winger, capable of playing on either wing, holds a special affinity for Arsenal.
The young Nigerian said: “I hope to find myself one day in a top club in Europe and to play for my national team. The shirt I dream of wearing is Arsenal’s because I’ve always had Thierry Henry as a role model since I was little”.
However, the young talent knows there’s no point dreaming of such a move now, first wanting to break through in Belgian football as one of the better players in the league.
Step by step, he wants to show the world what he is capable of doing, rather than jumping ship too early and ending up rotting in the reserves somewhere.
Remember the name. Who knows? With a little luck, Arsenal might have a new Henry (the name he has on the back of his shirt) in years to come.
