Have Arsenal Just Signed The Barça Starlet To FINALLY Replace Cesc?
It's no secret that Wenger has never really managed to replace the once-talismanic Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas but in fifteen year old (now ex-)Barça starletGeorgios Spanoudakis, some are predicting he may just have found the one.
Perfect for the Prem, the Greek-born German is, like Cesc, obviously fantastic on the ball and equally adept at playing as a holding midfielder and as a more advanced attacking threat where he's shown a keen eye for goal. Unlike the Spaniard, however, the player is big and strong and will likely only get bigger and stronger.
He is, however, fifteen. That's pretty bloody young by anyone's estimations, but with people rating Spanoudakis as highly as they do, we wouldn't be terribly surprised to see him popping up in cameos over the next season or two.
All well and good, but what about NOW, Arsene?
