Both Juventus and AC Milan, as well as several clubs in the Bundesliga, are considering making a move for Arsenal teenage striker Sam Greenwood.
The 17 year old moved to Arsenal from the Sunderland academy system last year, and has already made a big impression with his new club. Selected to play for England at the under-17 European Championship in the summer, Greenwood scored in all of the three matches that his country played, against the Netherlands, Sweden, and France, catching the eye of scouts from all the major European clubs that were there to watch.
Arsenal will not want one of their brightest young prospects to leave on a permanent deal, but could be open to Greenwood going on loan to help with his development, as happened with Reiss Nelson who spent last season with Hoffenheim.
Greenwood is a striker who can play either on his own up-front or slightly behind, and who likes to come in and drive towards goal from either flank, telling the club’s official website “I’m working on improving every aspect of my game, including shooting, heading and passing, but I’m concentrating most on my positioning and movement.”
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
