Arsenal are rumoured to be locked in an up-til-now secret battle over the latest wonderkid to come out of Spain. The lively youngster – apparently set to become a bit of a phenomenon – is being kept well under wraps at his family home in Elche although Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, never one to miss out on new, young signings, is allegedly keeping tabs on his progress.
The suggestion is, his growth will need to be monitored, with him being a little on the small size right now but having already mastered some skilful flicks and tricks with his nifty and surprisingly strong footwork, he really could be the next footballing sensation.
Wenger is keen for the Spanish youngster to remain out of the public eye for as long as possible, although his parents suggest “the baby is due in two weeks”.
