Arsenal Sign Another Starlet

Arsenal Sign Another Starlet

Arsenal have struck a deal that will see French teenager Gilles Sunu move to the Grove on a four-year contract in the summer.

The Gunners have won the race for the highly-rated Chateauroux striker, beating Premiership rivals Liverpool in the process.

Now Sunu has turned 16, it has been confirmed that the French youth international will continue his footballing education under Arsene Wenger in North London after the two clubs came to an agreement.

Arsenal are believed to being paying between 1-4million Euro's (£680,000-£2.71million) for the teenager who is hoping to become the latest French starlet to shine for The Gunners.

Sunu will move to England in July and is expected to put pen-to-paper on the four-year deal when Chateauroux president Michel Denisot meets Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein in April to finally ratify the deal.

Another example of Wengers eye for talent. The man is looking 5 years ahead for us. Trust in him. As one of the boys always says Wenger Knows!!!

not that its not good or anything.... I mean its gr8 to have young talent at the club but MAN i'd love it if we could sign a couple of very good experienced players. this squad will develop into a gr8 team but without any new signings i dont see us seriously challenging for the championship next year

How does anyone know if he is another great youngster, has anyone seen him play??............Trying to buy the worlds most sought after youth is all well & good but these players are all coming through together so cannot all get the chance to play & most will eventually be sold off. It doesn't automatically follow that the ones you keep are the best, so unless Wenger is planning having a frontline of seven strikers per match I don't see the point......Has anyone else noticed he only ever signs young forwards & midfielders, he very rarely buys young defenders.Is this a deliberate ploy or a flaw in his plan??

today is for manu and chel$ki,tomorrow will be for us,dont think buying in anybody would change anything in the honors stakes,except disrupt our finely balanced building programme,it would put out the wrong signals for our future development if the youngsters are always looking over their shoulders at the experience walking into the first team ahead of them

We will buy a couple of more experienced players in the summer, but if young talent is out there, why not get it? AG, unfortunately, defending is a dying art. But there again, Traore, Clichy, Djourou, Senderos, Hoyte have all come through recently.

Arsene IS concentrating on the present and winning trophies. But he is also planning for an arsenal team 5 years down the line at the same time. I dont see why they cant go together. AG - Djourou and Senderos are both young, so are Hoyte and Traore. Cant see Arsene being biased towards mid-fielders and strikers.

Unfortunately, I also think Arsene is looking ahead to smooth the way for his predecessor in a couple of years. He doesn't have to do this, his legend would be assured, but he is putting the club's long term future ahead of his own ego. Something a certain manager of a certain London club would know nowt about.
