Arsenal have become frontrunners for 16yo Juventus youngster, Moise Kean, according to reports in Italy.
It’s said that the Italian giants value Kean at £10m and Manchester City are also up there with Arsenal in bringing the young Centre-Forward to England.
Kean has already made history when he came on for Juventus in their 3-0 win over Pescara in November, which made him the first player born in the 2000’s to play in Europe’s top 5 leagues. He also became the first player born this century to feature in the Champion’s League when he came on against Sevilla in the same month.
Although reports state Arsenal are very much at the front of the queue for Kean, one thing that could make things difficult is that his agent is none other than Mino Raiola.
There is a myth that Arsenal don’t do business anymore with three agents. Darren Dein (infamous son of former Arsenal & FA Vice-Chairman, David Dein), Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola. However the latter already has a client at Arsenal in youngster Donyell Malen whom he actually said could “become a revelation” under Arsène Wenger.
Moise Kean has been at Juventus for six years now and appeared for Italy at both Under-15 and Under-17 level, this season he’s had seven goals and three assists in nine youth appearances.
