'Exactly what we need': Some Arsenal fans applaud 'great business' club might pull off for talent
Arsenal are reportedly interested in Pacos de Ferreira midfielder Matchoi Djalo.
According to the Sun, the Gunners are entertaining the prospect of signing the 18-year-old talent. Moreover, as per the report, the Primeira Liga side are willing to sell Djalo for just £1m.
Indeed, Arsenal are already close to signing Fulham youngster Mika Biereth as reported by the Atheltic. And Djalo could be the next prospect to join the club’s youth ranks this summer.
The Gunners U-23 side finished a dismal 10th in the Premier League 2 standings last campaign, winning just six matches and losing 10.
Furthermore, Steve Bould was relieved of his duties with the U-23 side as head coach, and it appears this summer Arsenal are working to improving the quality of the club’s top youth side.
Moreover, fans on social media are happy that the club are targeting a player of Djalo’s profile.
The youngster made his Pacos first-team debut at just 16-years-old. And at just £1m, it is a transfer that is low-risk high-reward.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say about the club potentially signing Djalo on Twitter…
