Romanian wonderkid Catalin Carjan has revealed when he will join Arsenal.
Carjan is regarded as one of the most promising talents in Romania – with new Gunners chief Unai Emery keen to add top quality youngsters to the club’s academy.
Along with Carjan, the Gunners have won the race to bring Barcelona ace Joel Lopez to their London Colney base – with the 16-year-old left back signing professional terms.
Midfielder Carjan, who enjoyed a successful trial with the north London outfit last season, will finalise his deal with Arsenal, after departing Viitourul Domnesti in December when he turns 16.”It’s something else,” he told Romanian outlet Digi Sport, as reported by the Metro . “It’s a big difference I cannot wait to go there to sign and it’s going to be much better.
“I will sign when I’m 16. They’ve been watching me for more matches and that was it – after that they sent me the tickets to go to them.
“They told me that I was a good player and that they wanted [me] to go to the big team in two years.”
