Arsenal Close In On Signature of “New Cristiano Ronaldo,” According to Reports

By on January 22, 2014

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the signature of Real Betis winger Alvaro Vadillo – a young player who has often been likened to a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, according to CaughtOffside and CalcioMercato.

The 19 year old winger has a 20 million Euro release clause in his contract that Arsene Wenger has been interested in engaging for some time.

With the recent injury of Theo Walcott, Wenger is now even more keen to bolster his title-chasing side.

Recently, the youngster has reportedly made clear his desire to move to the Emirates, and this has brought Arsenal scouts to full attention.

The highly-rated winger became the second youngest player to ever play in La Liga in 2011 at the age of 16, and has been a regular star with Real Betis this season.

Real Betis sit on the bottom of the La Liga table, and so they may not soon have the financial clout to withstand a multi-million Euro bid from Arsenal.
