Arsenal have reportedly made a proposal to sign Barcelona wonderkid Ilias Akhomach on a free transfer this summer.

Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar must have formalised their plans for the summer window already. We already know our top targets – the likes of Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo – but there could be more incomings too.

Arsenal have made it a point to sign talented young players in almost every single window, and Akhomach could be the one this time.

Arsenal make ‘powerful’ offer to sign Ilias Akhomach from Barcelona

Arsenal’s recruitment of young players over the last few years has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Gabriel Martinelli is arguably the best find in the entire Premier League, while we also found a gem in Matteo Guendouzi – although that came to a sad end because of his disciplinary issues.

Young Marquinhos joined Arsenal last summer and he is a fine talent as well, and we’re sure Arsenal will not stop recruiting young players going forward.

Spanish outlet Sport reveal now that Barcelona youngster Akhomach is now on Edu’s radar, and the report claims that Arsenal have made a ‘powerful proposal’ to sign him on a free transfer along with Sevilla and AC Milan.

Although there are two other clubs interested in Akhomach, it has been reported that Arsenal are the ones who have shown the most interest in the teenager.

The new Lionel Messi

Barcelona legend Patrick Kluivert knows a talented young player when he sees one having been a remarkable footballer himself back in the day.

The Dutchman was the academy director at Barcelona and spent two years overseeing things at La Masia there. He spotted young Akhomach very early and was blown away.

Goal quote Kluivert calling the teenager the ‘new Lionel Messi‘ back then, which is extraordinary praise for someone who was still 16 years old at the time.

Akhomach’s contract at Barcelona will expire this summer he will leave on a free transfer. Arsenal are reportedly keen to sign him.
