Arsenal chase Barcelona Youngster

Arsenal are currently looking at the latest Spanish sensation to come out of Barcelona, 17 year-old Gerard Deulofeu.

Chief scout Steve Rowley has been keeping a close eye on the teenager over the summer, and he is already being compared to the great Lionel Messi. Deulofeu is only on a youth contract at Barcelona and cannot sign a professional contract until he is 18, but his current youth contract does have a £3million buyout clause attached.

Barcelona are aware of the interest from Arsenal, and Chelsea are rumoured to be interested as well, and do not want another situation like what happened with Cesc Fabregas back in 2003.

Barcelona are already preparing a contract for Deulofeu to sign when he becomes 18 early next year and the Spanish giants hope that they will be able to hold on to their man until then.
