Whilst all the focus at Arsenal right now may be on Fabregas and his eminent departure to Barcelona, it seems like Arsenal are one up on Barcelona already according to The Sun. It is reporting that Arsenal have signed another one of Barcelona’s young players just like what they did when Fabregas made the move from Spain to Arsenal.

Arsenal may not need a new right-back right now but 16-year-old Hector Bellerin has made the move from the Nou Camp to the Emirates as he thinks he will get more first team action at Arsenal than Barcelona. Wenger has no problems fielding young players in the team but at 16, Bellerin may have to wait a season or two before he gets he crap at Arsenal.

Bellerin, speaking to Spanish TV programme Punto Pelota, said: “I was at home and my father called me to say Arsenal had been on the phone.

“We decided to go there to see how things are. I hadn’t made up my mind because I’d been at Barcelona all my life so it was very difficult.

“But after evaluating things I decided to join Arsenal. When you want to be a professional you have to look to make your way. And I believe the right path for me was to choose Arsenal.

“We met Mr Wenger and it went so well. It was all too much for me but I paid full attention to everything he said. When there is a team that guarantees you can play in the first team and above all in the Premier League, then it is very difficult to say no.

“Mr Wenger was explaining to me how the club was and the project they had prepared for me and above all he wanted to get to know me.”

It seems that Arsene has no problem at all in signing young players, they are want to play for him, probably because they have seen that they can play in the first team at Arsenal no matter what your age is. A lot has been said about Arsenal’s youth policy and its pros and cons. One thing is for sure, if Wenger stays at Arsenal and has time to work on these youngsters, we could have a great side in a couple of seasons time.
