Arsenal vs Real Madrid over the signing of a South American star

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger might suffer another blow as one of the club’s transfer targets Andy Polo is rumoured to be close to a Real Madrid move according to Talksport.

The 17-year-old Peruvian striker is rated to be the best South American prospect of the moment, and if the rumours are right, the interest from Arsenal, Real Madrid and Schalke 04 wouldn’t be in vain.

Wenger already has a young talented striker preparing to join the Arsenal squad. 18-year-old Costa Rican player Joel Campbell was also highly rated before joining Arsenal and at the moment he is spending his time on loan at the French League 1 side Lorient.

Andy Polo is expected to make a decision prior to the January transfer market opening, so things will be settled soon. Real Madrid is very difficult to refuse, but Arsenal might give the young striker a better chance to grow.
