In a matter of two weeks, the January transfer window will be opened but Arsenal seem to have no need for a first team player.
According to report, Arsenal have advanced talks with AZ Almaar in a bid to sign their young goalkeeper Jasper Schendelaar.
Jasper Schendelaar, tipped as one of Holland’s major new hopes, is yet to make a first-team appearance for AZ, but is widely regarded as one of the country’s best young prospects. Some observers claim Schendelaar has the potential to become Holland’s best goalkeeper since Edwin van der Sar.
Tutto Mercato Web claim we made enquiries for the player and the deal is most probable before the end of January.
Arsene Wenger already has a wealth of talent in the goalkeeping department with Petr Cech, David Ospina and Emiliano Martinez on his books, so the signing of Schendelaar would very much be one for the future.
Arsenal are one of the best ground for breeding youngsters and should Schendelaar complete the move the Emirates, he will ascend the grades of Arsenal.
Schendelaar is an under-17 Holland international and is contracted to AZ Alkmaar until the summer of 2019, but it is thought he could be prised away for a fee in the region of £2million.
