DONE DEAL: Arsenal Sign Versatile Midfielder Ahead of Man United.

Arsenal Transfer News May 2015 Today

Arsenal are acting fast this time with transfer activities. They secured a deal last week but that one was not something many wanted to hear as the player involved was an 11-year old kid from Luton Town. His name is Charlie Patino. Let us leave that and move on because that is not why we are here.

Arsenal have completed the signing of Yassin Fortune from RC Lens, news reports have it. All we know for now is that the North-London club gave him a contract which has a three-year span, two years as a scholar and one year as a professional.

Arsenal won the race over Manchester United because the Red Devils were not willing to pay the required amount of money as they saw it as an unnecessary risk.

We have no cause to worry over Arsenal signing the 16-year old starlet. Wenger is a manager who has an eye for prospects so we can be rest assured that he knows what he is paying for.

Fortune was born on January 30, 1999 in the French town of Aubervilliers, Paris. In 2008, he started up at Red Star where he spent four years before moving to Ligue 1 to join Lens. He is a France U16 regular and has scored five goals in his ten appearances.

He is versatile. He can play as an attacking midfielder, a winger and also as a striker which means in him, Arsenal have a three-in-one, a trinity.

You might say that he is not coming straight into the first team. You are right but I see positives from the two signings Arsenal have made so far. I believe they want to finish up with young players signing before the windows opens so that by then, they can fully focus on big transfers. It's good to know that we have started well.
