David Henen to Arsenal? Gunners in talks with teenage Belgian striker - reports

The 18-year-old has also been tracked by Manchester United

It has been a quite summer in the transfer market for Arsene Wenger, but one deal that could be close to completion for Arsenal is the transfer of Anderlecht teenager David Henen.

Reports in Henen's home country of Belgium claim that the Gunners are in talks with the 18-year-old striker, who spent last season on loan at Monaco B, over a €1.5m move.

The highly-rated Henen has also been watched by Manchester United and Internazionale scouts.

Arsenal, who unlike their rivals have not strengthened their squad this summer, have also been linked with Serge Aurier from Auxerre and Sami Khedira from Real Madrid.


The Gunners have already turned down their option of re-signing Cesc Fabregas and Carlos Vela this summer.
