Arsenal have begun advanced discussion to sign the talented Sporting Gijon forward Carlos Castro, who is tipped by the Spanish media as the next “David Villa”. Arsene Wenger is keen to add the 19-year old forward to his talented bunch of strikers as he sees enough potential in Castro to be one of the best strikers in near future.

Castro’s comparison with David Villa are obvious as the Sporting Gijon forward is pacey, trickery and has an eye for goal. The Spanish striker has scored 7 goals in 19 appearances despite not playing the entire game even once this season.

The news of Arsenal’s interest in Castro has been confirmed by Portuguese newspaper O Jogo. Castro is eyed as the perfect Arsenal striker because of his fluid playing style. 19-year old striker would cost Arsenal less than 10 million if they decided to go ahead and sign them.

It is believed that Arsenal manager would ask his scouts to keep a watchful eye on Castro in coming weeks and prepare a comprehensive report allowing Arsene Wenger to give the go-ahead to sign the Carlos Castro who is dubbed as the next “David Villa”.

The decision to sign Castro comes on the back on Wenger’s decision to loan the free-scoring reserve team player Chuba Akpom. Nottingham Forest are keen on signing Akpom on loan for the entire 2015-16 season which would allow Wenger to go ahead and sign the next “David Villa” – Carlos Castro from Sporting Gijon.

In other Arsenal transfer news, Sami Khedira looks to be slipping away from Arsenal’s grasp as the German is keen on a move back to Bundeslia with Schalke leading the race for the Real Madrid man’s signature.
