Arsenal win Bayern in race for highly-rated teen


From all indications, Arsenal have won the race, ahead of German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich in the Hammarby youngster Emil Roback.

It is claimed that Bayern Munich were a major contender for the signature of the youngster but the Gunners have made many steps to ensure they win the race. Arsenal are reported to have invited the striker to visit the Emirates Stadium and are satisfied with what have been seen of him.

Hammarby Sporting director Jesper Jansson has also confirmed Arsenal’s chance after confirming that talks have been held with the North London club while the player has visited London Colony.

Arsenal have got Alexander Lacazette and Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang to boast of at the moment, but Emil Roback can be a good investment for the future.

A deal for Emil Roback is also not expected to cost much which makes the deal a possibility as long as the coaches can give their nod to it. He is also likely to begin his career at Arsenal with the Academy team until the end of the season.

There are also chances that he will be with the Mikel Arteta team in the preseason as long as his deal is sealed in a good time.
