Arsenal are of course always looking to invest in their future but one might imagine Arsene Wenger would be prioritising the signings of players that can make a difference to the team here and now. Furthermore, Aston Villa will surely want to hold onto their stellar youth products, especially now they’re staying in The Premier League. But the trend of the cream getting skimmed off the milk by the top clubs in England and Europe sadly shows no sign of abating at this point in time.
Let’s have a look at him shall we? Yes, let’s.
