Arsenal boasts of one of the best academies in Europe and this right is justified by the number of superstars that have churned out of the academy.,
As part of securing the club’s future, Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Brazilian starlet Yuri, as the Under-17 striker continues to be outstanding for Santos youth team.
The youngster has already represented Brazil at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 levels, while he’s bagged an impressive haul of 40 goals in 28 games for his club’s youth team this year.
Arsenal are reportedly monitoring his progress and are currently weighing a move for the player.
Noting the quality of the player, Yuri’s agent has insisted that the player will remain with Santos to aid his development. However, his impressive performance for club and country has seen him drawn attraction from top European clubs.
It’s added in the report that both Manchester United and Manchester City are also interested, but it remains to be seen which Premier League giant pushes their way to the front of the queue as it will undoubtedly be a fierce race to sign Yuri if he continues on his current trajectory.
Wenger has a history of signing talented youngsters and developing them into top players, and naturally he will hope to have the opportunity to do the same thing in this instance as and when Yuri and his agent believe the time is right to consider a move away from his homeland.
