For once Arsenal have the upper hand in a transfer struggle over their cash rich rivals. The Daily Star reports that yet another teenage prodigy has caught the fancy of Arsene Wenger and the Frenchman will employ all available resources to get his hands on Ethan Ampadu.
Ampadu has developed into quite a sensation at his club Exeter City, so much so that the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Jose Mourinho and Louis Van Gaal have all alerted their scouts to monitor his progress. The midfielder spent three days at an England under-15 training camp, before he eventually chose to play for Wales. The 14 year old impressed in Wales’ under-16 match against England in September, which culminated in a 1-0 defeat for the Three Lions.
